Rhyming Dictionary 








Author of the " Critical Prohoiiiuing Dictionary" 





Manchester and New York 


John Walker, whose name is familiar to every student 
of the orthoepy of the English language, published his 
Ehijming Dictionary in 1775, twenty years after the pub- 
lication of Johnson's Dictionary of the English Lan- 
guage, and sixteen before the appearance of his own 
Critical Pronouncing Dictionary. A second edition, 
however, was not required till 1806, and, as Walker had 
been an Actor before he became a Teacher of Elocution 
in London, he natui-ally dedicated his work to David 
Garrick, to whose pronunciation on the stage, and fre- 
quent advice in the prosecution of his inquiries, he 
gratefully acknowledges his obligations for no small 
measure of whatever merit his work might possess. We 
have not had an opportunity of ascertaining the dates 
of all the subsequent editions ; but we believe the last 
was printed in 1851. 

Walker certainly had the merit of first producing a 
work of this sort in the English language on such an 
extensive scale ; for the work of Bysshe to which he 
refers, and of which the fourth edition was printed in 
1710, extends to only thirty-six pages, on each of which 
are four columns of words without accent or explana- 
tion, which amount to a number between six and seven 
thousand, whereas the present work may claim the title 
of a sufficient dictionary of the language. 

A Tihyming Dictionary^ properly so called, ought to 
bring together all those words that have the same ter- 
minal sound, although they may not end in the same 
letters ; but such a collocation would have complicated 
the difficulty of finding a particular word and excluded 
some of the other advantages which the present arrange- 
ment affords. Hence words that are brought together 
on account of the similarity of their spelling, such as 


bremJ and leiul, refuse to rhyme with one another ; Avhilst 

Is that are chisely connected both by rh3-me and 

■n, na Iamb and ilam, are, on account of theii* final 

rs, put far asunder; but, to compensate this slight 

inconvenience, an Appendix has been constructed, in 

which tenninations similar in sound, althou<>h not in 

ortho<;ntphy, have been brought into one view, and 

namcrous examples given of the practice of many of oui' 

classical poets. 

In superintending the present edition in its passage 
through the press, we have omitted the repetition of 
those words that, in our Author's day, were beginning 
to drop the final /.- when preceded by c; we have altered 
the place of the accent in some words in conformity to 
present usage, but in others, concerning which there is 
a diversity of opinion, we have left the accent un- 
touched, as indicating Walker's decision ; and m many 
instances we have improved the definitions of words and 
increased the number of spiouymous terms, as far as 
the limits of a line would allow. After the lapse of so 
many years, it would readily occur to any one, that not 
a lew words would require to be added, in order to keep 
pace with the progress of our language ; nearly eighteen 
hundred words have accordingly been incorporated with 
the work. It is interesting to note the progress of 
scientific pursuits in the additions that have been made 
under the termination olor/i/ ; while the foot that the 
number of words ending in u has been doubled shews 
the increase of our commercial intercourse with foreign 
lands. With regard to the ingenious Appendix, exhi- 
biting Per^ec/, nearly perfect, and aUoicalle rhymes,— had 
we been producing a new work instead of a new edition 
of a work of the furmer century, all that refers to alloiv- 
able rhymes would certainly have been cancelled, as no 
longer tolerable to a poetic ear; and it is certainly some- 
what remarkable that our Author has taken no notice of 
the circumstance, that these imperfect rhymes generally 
result from the erroneous pronunciation which, in the 
Introduction to his Critical Dictionary, he had indicated 
as pecuhar to Ireland, and that most of his examples of 
these alUnvalle rhymes have accordingly been derived 
from the poems of Paruell. 


In his Introduction, our Autlior has ingeniously 
pointed out the various uses to which this Dictionary 
might be ap})lied ; the information, as to the structure 
of our language, that might be derived from the juxta- 
position of words of similar terminations, and the cor- 
rect pronunciation of one word as rhyming with another ; 
but singularly enough ho appears to have been some- 
what ashamed of the use to which the very title of the 
work would naturally suggest its application. Whether 
the liliijmiittj Dictionary forms an indispensable part of 
the apparatus of the writing desk of the English poet, 
wo have no means of ascertaining ; but, if any good 
elicct is produced by the composition of " nonsense 
verses " in our Latin seminaries, we are persuaded that 
no small benefit would result from the practice of com- 
posing sense verses in our English schools ; an ear for the 
pleasing rhythmus of the language would be cultivated, if 
not produced; the proper accentuation ©f the words 
would be fixed in the memory ; the correct sound of the 
vowels in the rhymes would be learned ; the discern- 
ment of nearly synonymous words would be forced on 
the attention, and the pupil's vocabulary- would neces- 
sarily be greatly increased from the obligation that the 
measure of the verse would lay upon him. to try several 
words befoi^e he could find one that would suit its place; 
not to speak of the due cultivation of the imagination, 
the elevation of the mind, and the refinement of the 

Under the impi'ession that the present work is admii'- 
ably calculated to afibrd assistance in promoting these 
important ends, we shall oSer a few facts and obser- 
vations on verse, alliteration, assonance, and rhyme, pre- 
mising that the limits to which we are restricted prevent 
our doing justice to a very interesting investigation. 

The subject to which these remarks will be confined 
does not impose on us the necessity of attempting to 
define either genius or poetry. Both the Greek and 
Scottish designation of a poet implies the belief that he 
is a creator, in contradistinction to the man of science, 
who is an investigator, and to the historian, who is a 
recorder. Verse is the form or habit in which a poem 
is geiierally, although not necessarily, presented to the 


liearcr or reader ; and it is to the peculiavities and orna- 
nientfi of this outward habit we would briefly invite 

A little consideration will lead to the conclusion, that 
verse, in most languages, differsfrom prose in the return 
of a certain number of syllables that have a peculiar 
relation to one another as accented and unaccented, or as 
long and short. It is universally felt that a degree of 
pleasure arises from this definite arrangement, and the 
origin of that pleasure is to be traced back to the sense 
of time with which men are generally endowed. It is 
this principle that regulates the step of a man, or the 
stroke of an oar; and hence the pleasure we experience 
in beholding the regular step of a company of soldiers 
in their march, and the simultaneous sweep of the oars 
of a well-manned boat. The time of music, apart from 
tuue, is evidently related to the movement to which we 
have now refeiTed, and can accordingly be regulated by 
the propei-ly measured, though monotonous, sound of 
the drum. The tendency to beat time with the "light 
fairta.stic toe" in the " g'iddy dance," is universally felt, 
and is found to be irresistible, even in the mere spec- 
tators. The next process was to bring lajiguage into 
conformity with the music thus produced, and the result 
was verse — a measured or metrical line. As these 
results, therefore, flow from innate principles of our 
constitution, so, in looking as far back along the history 
of man as our materials enable us, we find him accom- 
panied with music and verse ; for the rude cadence of 
his song or the movement of his dance is ever accom- 
panied by the tap of the drum. 

la the Bible, the most ancient of records, we find 
man, at a very early period, forming both wind and 
stringed instruments, modulating his speech into verse, 
and exhibiting in the very earliest instance on record 
that ])cculiar parallelism that characterised the Hebrew 
poetry of iili subsequent ages. 

When we look to language, we shall find that the 
words suggestive of persons, animals, things, and actions 
uro the most important; other words do little more than 
connect these principal words or j^oint out their quali- 
ties and relations. These words, therefore, especially in 

THE editor's PiiEFACE. 1a 

public speaking, would either be pronounced with 
greater foi-ce, or lengthened in the pronunciation, that the 
meaning of the speaker might be the more clearly appre- 
hended, or understood at a greater distance. This natu- 
rally suggests the words in a sentence on which the 
emphasis would be placed, and the obvious reason for 
employing such emphasis. What was thus true of a 
sentence would in process of time become true of a single 
word ; for the noun would have modifying syllables 
united to it, in order to shew its gender, number, and 
relation to other words; and the verb would have modi- 
fications made on it to indicate the persons acting and 
the time of the action ; but it would naturally occur, 
that the primary word on which these modifications had 
been made, especially if a monosyllable, would be indi- 
cated by pronouncing it with greater /orce or length than 
the modifying syllables, and hence the natural origin and 
place of the accent of a word. In such a collocation of 
words as forms a sentence, it would rarely happen that 
the emphatical words or accented syllables would unin- 
tentionally succeed one another in such a regular order 
ds would arrest the attention, and gratify the ear by the 
perception of uniformity in their recurrence. But, as 
already observed, it had been eai'ly discovered that there 
were some, who, thi'ough a peculiarly keen perception of 
such measured sentences and the possession of a copious 
vocabulary from which to draw their materials, could 
produce those measured sentences more readily and 
pleasantly than others ; and such persons, partly from 
the pleasure they afforded their hearers, and partly from 
the belief that they had received this peculiar gift directly 
from a Eupernatural source, would be highly esteemed 
and distincjuished amonsf their fellow-men. 

Syllables thus resolve themselves into emphatical or 
strong, and unemphatical or weak ; or long and short, 
as they have otherwise been named. Referring once 
more to marching, or beating time with the foot, we 
may suppose an important word to be uttered at the 
putting down of each foot ; hence two accented or long 
B^^llables for a measure ; or the first syllable may be 
strong and the next weak, and so on alternately; or the 
first syllable may be weak and the second strong, and 


this order may be preserved throughout: but other 
inotlilications may yet be made, by pronouncing two 
feeble syllables at one step and one emphatical syllable 
at the next step; or we may pronounce an emphatical 
syllable at the first step and this may be followed by 
two fecltle ones ; and hence the pleasure the ear derives 
from such a regularly-returning combination of syllables. 


That a large portion of the Holy Scriptures is poetical 
cannot be doubted, althougli the principles of Hebrew 
versification have not been fully ascertained. Many 
parts are expressly called songs, while the nature of the 
composition and the elevation of style clearly indicate 
the poetical construction of others. Josephus, who 
ought to be a competent judge, affirms that the " songs 
of Moses " were in heroic verse, while the "psalms 
of David exhibited various kinds of verse, some of 
which were composed in trimeters and others in penta- 
meters. The nature and genius of Hebrew poetry, how 
ever, have been warmly contested, and have been most 
successfully illustrated by Bishops Lowth and Jebb. 
The poetry of the Hebrews originated in the service of 
religion, and, together with music, was evidently culti- 
vated by their prophets, and brought to the greatest 
excellence in the time of David, who was himself not 
only a poet, but an inventor of musical instruments. 
Lowth has endeavoured to prove that the Hebrew 
poetry exhibits a characteristic dialect ; that it abounds 
in highly figurative and truly sublime expressions ; and 
that it possesses a peculiarity to which he has applied the 
term pnrallelisvi . Striking instances of this peculiarity 
may be found in any of the psalms in which the two 
members of a sentence are so adjusted that words answer 
to words and thoughts to thoughts. It is this charac- 
teristic that, even in a prose translation, indicates the 
])oetic structure of the originals, and fits these songs of 
praise at once for chanting. 

Thufl, for example, in the ninety-fifth psalm — 

" In His hand arc the dicp places of the earth, 
T)»o Htreng^th of the hills is Ilis also. 


The sea is His, and Ho made it, 
And His hands formed the dry haul." 

Here we cannot fail to see liow " the depths of the earth" 
are contrasted with " the hciglit of the hills ;" and both 
are represented as His possessions ; while " the sea" is 
contrasted with " the land," and both assigned to His 
creative power. The following example from the forty- 
fourth chapter of Isaiah will also forcibly illustrate this 
peculiarity : — 

" For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty 
KnA. floods upon the dry ground ; 
I will pour my sjnrit upon thy seed, 
And my blessing upon thine offspring.'* 

Here the parallelism between water and floods, thirsty 
and dry, in the first distich, and spirit and blessimj, seed 
and offspring in the second, is at once apparent ; and the 
knowledge of this principle is not without its use in as- 
certaining the meaning of certain expi^essions, as it is 
evident that the parallel words in the above quotation 
are also synonymous, and thus, when the Saviour is said 
to have poured His blessing upon the infants that were 
bi'ought to Him for that purpose, His action was tant- 
amount to pouring His spirit upon their souls. 

Some have endeavoured to shew that such metrical 
construction as we find in the poetry of the Greeks and 
Romans, may be detected also in that of the Hebrews ; 
but this has been strenuously controverted by others. 
In passing, therefore, from the sacred to the profane, we 
not only enter a new field of thought, but we also per- 
ceive a new mode of cultivation ; and the Christian, 
whilst he has derived the seeds of truth from the Jew, 
has chosen to cultivate them after the manner of 
the Gentile. Hence the necessity of our making a few 
remarks on the principle of the construction of Greek 
and Latin verse. Those who have treated this subject 
have been led to point out the distinction between quantity 
and accent, affirming that the former regulated the versi- 
fication of ancient, and the latter that of modem times. 
"VVe humbly conceive that quantity and accent are found 
in the compositions of both periods ; but that the former 
were more distinguished by the quantity of syllables, not 

ill THE editor's preface. 

neglecting the accent, and that the latter are more de- 
pendent on accent, not however, neglecting quantity. 
Syllables among the ancients were considered as either 
hiiij or short, according to the length of time with which 
they were respectively pronounced ; among the moderns, 
as acceuied or unaccented, according to the force with 
which they are respectively pronounced. Two syllables, 
accordingly, in sequence, may either be both long or both 
short ; or the one may be long and the other short, or 
the one may be short and the other long ; or to express 
the same ideas by signs ; two syllables may be thus ai*- 

ranged, , or spondee ; ^w ^', or dibrach ; — ^-^, or 

trochee ; and -^ — , or iamb ; and all these arrangements 
occur in English poetry ; but we shall only repx-esent the 
two aiTangements of three syllables that 'occur in our 
verse, ^-^ '■^ — , or anapest, and — ^—^ ^-', or dactyl. 
Each of those arrangements is called a foot, metre, or 
mcamre, and the verse derives its peculiar name from 
the foot that most abounds in it. Among both the 
Greeks and the Romans the noblest combination of these 
vielres is called the heroic, from its being generally em- 
ployed to celebrate the deeds of their gods and heroes, 
as in the celebrated works of Homer and Virgil. We 
shall briefly direct attention to this species of verse, on 
account of the influence that it has so long exerted on 
the productions of subsequent bards. It consisted of six 
of these feet, and hence was called hexameter. Gene- 
rally speaking, the last foot must be a spomlee, and the 
preceding a dactyl ; each of the other four might be in- 
discriminately either a dactyl or a spondee. Hence the 
number of syllables might vary from thirteen to seven- 
teen; but much taste and ingenuity might be displayed 
in the choice of the optional or arbitrary feet in order to 
render the " sound an echo to the sense," as the spondee 
was suited to a slow and solemn movement, and the 
dactyl to a quick and lively one. In elegiac verse, an 
hexameter line alternated with a pentameter, and it is 
f)robably from this that we have derived an heroic verse 
which i& pentameter, and, as the iamb is the prevailing 
loot, it is specifically termed iambic. As the verse; is 
tlicrefijre jiciitameter and iambic, it necessarily consists 
of ten syllables. Like the hexameter, its last foot is 


fixed, and must be a true iamb, but any of the other 
pUices may be occupied either with a spondee, dibrach, 
or trochee. 

For heroic, narrative, and didactic subjects, this verse 
has long been employed. It is allowed to be of native 
origin, and Chaucer, the father of English poetry, has 
generally been accorded the honour of its invention. 
In its loftiest forms, it is written as blank verse, as in 
Milton's Paradise Lost and Regained and Young's Night 
ThougJits ; or as rhyming couplets, as in the works cf 
Chaucer, Dryden, Pope, Campbell, Crabbe, Mont- 
gomery, and many others. In Chaucer, it is compara- 
tively harsh to our ear ; but it acquired strength in 
Denham, sweetness in Waller, a combination of these 
in Dryden, and, perhaps, perfection in Pope. 

Let us read the following example from the Canterbury 
Tales .— 

" A good man was thor of religioun, 
And was a pore Persoun of a toun ; 
But riche he was of holy thought and work 
He was also a lerned man, a clerk 
That Cristes gospel gladly wolde preche ; 
His parischens devoutly wolde he teche.— 
Wyd was his parisch, and houses fer asondur, 
But he ne lafte not for reyne ne tnondur, 
In siknesse ne in mes'chief to visite 
The ferrest in his parissche, moche and lite, 
Uppon his feet, and in his bond a staf . 
This noble cnaample unto his schcep he gaf, 
But ferst he wroughte, and after that he taughte,'" Ac. 

Here will immediately be felt, the want of the stately 
march and harmonious roll of the heroic verse of the 
present day. On examining the passage, this will be 
found to arise from an apparent defect or superfluity of 
syllables ; thus two syllables are apparently wanting in 
the fifth line, but by making "Christes" and "wolde" dis- 
syllables, we shall find the verse complete ; on the other 
hand, the twelfth line seems to have two superfluous 
syllables ; but by eliding the final e of " noble" and " en- 
sample," or making the termination of these words glide 
into the beginning of those that follow, we shall get rid of 
those redundant syllables, and I'educe the line to its 
proper dimensions. Let it be remembered, however. 

XIV THE editor's PREFACE. 

that Chaucer was not so fastidious as his successors be- 
came, and Drj-den had consequently reason to say: — 
" It were an easy matter to produce some thousands of 
his verses, which are himo for want of half a foot, and 
sometimes a whole one, and which no pronunciation can 
make otherwise. We can only say that he lived in the 
infancy of our poetry, and that nothing is brought to 
perfection at first." It is difficult, from the very abun- 
dance, to select a passage that might prove the harmonj/ 
and strength of this verse in modern times ; for the 
exact prosody and pure rhymes of the Pleasures oj 
Mciaory or of Hope, present such examples on every 
page. "We shall submit the following : — 

" Unfading Hope ! wli'^n lifu's last embers burn, 
Then soul to soul, :inddust to dust return ! 
Heaven to thy charge resigns the awful hour ! 
Oil ! then, thy kingdom comes ! Immortal Power ! 
Wliat though each spark of earth-born rapture fly 
The quivering lip, pale cheek, and closing cyo ! 
Bright to the soul thy seraph hands convey 
The morning dream of life's eternal day — 
Then, then, the triumph and the trance begin, 
And all the phoenix spirit burns within." 

The noble-st and most difficult species of this is 
tliat which has been called Uanlc, on account of its want- 
ing rhyme. To elevate it, therefore, above prose, into 
wliich it is apt to run in unskilful or careless hands, 
great attention must be given to its rhythm and, 
apart from the elevation of those sentiments of which it 
may be considered the appropriate vehicle. Marlowe, 
the greatest of Shakspcare's predecessors, found the 
drama shackled by rhyming couplets. Some were then 
beginning to throw off this restraint, but the sense as 
formerly still terminated with the line, wliich led Nash 
to characterise it as "the spacious volubility of a drum- 
ming decasyllabon." It was therefore reserved for the 
genius of ^^larlowe to break up this monotonous unifor- 
mity, and to introduce into his blank verse those various 
pauses that were afterwards to bo managed with such 
consummate art in the harmonious and varied construc- 
tion (.f tlie groat Epic of Milton, that will ever affi.rd the 
lirop».r.><cli(ioi Inr tlicstudy ol'tlic pericctiou of the 
Ijcroic. A critic, in condemniug the opinion that the pause 


may occur after any syllable in the line, asserts that tliis 
is equivalent to saying that there is no place at all for the 
pause. Now, had he examined Milton's lines, he would 
have found instances of the pause after each syllable ; 
but he would have found that its occui*renco after the 
first and ninth was rare, and that its place occurred 
more frequently and agreeably after the fourth, sixtb, 
and eighth syllables — the places which the ear had be- 
fore assigned to them in our lyric poems. When the 
pause occurs after the odd syllables, which are unac- 
cented, the effect is not unpleasant, but the close is 
deficient in power. In such passages as the following, 
we mark in the first line the pause near the beginning, 
then receding farther in the next, till the full close is 
found at the end of the sixth line. 

" To nourish, | and superfluous moist consumes ; 
But I will haste, | and from each hough and hrake, 
Each plant and juciest gourd, | will pluck such choice 
To entertain our angel guest, | as ho 
Beholding shall confess, that here, on Earth, 
God hath dispensed his bounties as in Heaven." 

Other examples could be given in which the pause is 
near the end of the first line, more remote in the next, 
and so on till it approaches the beginning and then be- 
gins again to retire farther into the Hne ; but our space 

The heroic verse is sometimes formed into a quatrain 
with alternate rhymes ; which, from its employment, 
has been called the eleijiac stanza. Dryden considered 
this the noblest species of versification that our language 
possesses, but few have been of his opinion. It affords 
greater vai'iety than the couplet, and has a more sonorous 
melody and stately gait. It was in this measure that 
he wrote his Anmis Mirahilis ; Shenstone wrote many 
elegies in it that are scarcely remembered, and Gray 
has written one that will never be forgotten. We give 
the following specimen as embodying sentiments that 
the Chi'istiau sadly misses in the Country Glmrchjard : — 


" One place alone had ceased to hold its prey , 

A form had pressed it, and was tliorc no more , 
The garineiits of the grave beside it lay, 

Where once they wrapped Him on the rocky floor. 


' He only with reluming foofstcjis Tjrnko 

The ttirnal cahn wherewith tlie tomb was bound ; 
Amoiip the sleeping dead alono he woke, 

And bless'd with outstretch'd hands the host around. 

" Well is it that such blessing hovers here 

To soothe each sad survivor of the throng, 
Who haunt the portals of the solemn sphere, 
And pour their woe the loaded air along. 

** They to the verge have foUow'd what the)' love. 
And on the insuperable threshold stand ; 
With cherish'd names its speechless calm reprove. 
And stretch in the abyss their ungrasped hand." 

It has been supposed that we are indebted for our Hue 
of twelve syllables, commonly called Alexandrine verse, 
to the French, as that is the measure of their heroic 
poetrj^. After the Restoration, this verse was used in 
dramatic compositions, to gratify the taste of the king, 
whose ear had become familiarised to it during his 
sojourn in France. Dryden also frequently concluded 
a triplet with an Alexandrine in his heroic verse ; but 
as this suggests that the poet was either unable to pack 
the idea it contains into the previous couplet, or was 
unable to find another idea to occupy another line, it 
has thus, either as an indication of negligence or barren- 
ness, been generally rejected. The most considerable 
poem in English that has been composed in this measure 
is Drayton's Foh/olhlun, of which the following lines 
will afibrd a specimen : — 

" Then from her burnished gate the goodly glittering Flast 
Gilds every mountain-top, wliich late tlie humourous night 
Bespangled had witli peail, to please the raorning'i sight; 
On which the mirthful quires, with their clear open throats, 
Tnto the j(jyiul morn so strain their warbling notes, 
'J'hat tills and valleys riiijr, and even the echoing air 
fSeems all composed of songs about them every where." 

The verse of fourteen syllables has also been emplo3'ed 
in no less considerable a work than Chapman's trans- 
lation of Homer — a work into which he has happily 
transfused not a little of the spirit of the original 
After a long interval, the suitableness of this measure to 
express heroic action.s has been justified by its adoption 
by Lord ^facaulay, in his Lai/s of Ancient Rome, al- 
though he has occasionally contracted or expanded the 


line by a syllable. We illustrate by a few lines from 
Tvry :— 

"Kiyht graciously he smiled on us, as rolled from wins; to wing, 

Down all our linc^ a deafening sliout, ' God s ive our lord the King,' 

* And if my standard-bearer fall, as fall full well he may — 

For never saw I promise yet of such a bloody fray — 

Press where ye see my white plume shine, amidst the ranks of war, 

And be your orillamme to-day, the helmet of Navarre.' " 

This is the greatest length to which our lines have been 
cari'ied, and, in this respect, they bear a close resem- 
blance to the hexameter of the ancients. As the pause 
is uniformly at the end of the eighth syllable, it became 
convenient in printing to break the line into portions, 
and this forms the well-known stanza of our psalms and 
hymns, familiarly known as common vieasure. After the 
verse had been thus divided, a farther improvement was 
made upon it by considering each portion as a distinct 
lino, and then making the four lines rhyme alternately. 
This foi'iH may be seen in the following stanza : — 

" Hope, like the glimmering taper's liylit, 
Adorns and cheers the way ; 
And still, as darker grows the night. 
Emits a brighter ray." 

On this point, Montgomery has thus expressed his 
opinion : — " It is a great temptation to the indolence of 
hymn-writers, that the quatrain measures have been so 
often used by Dr. Watts without rh^^me in the first and 
third lines. He himself confessed that this was a de- 
fect ; and, though some of the most beautiful hymns ai-e 
\\\wa this model, if the thing itself be not a fault, it is 
the cause of half the faults that may be found in in- 
ferior compositions, — negligence, feebleness, and pros- 
ing." Notwithstanding the justice of this remark, we 
observe that most of the Hymns in the Dean of Canter- 
bury's Poetical Works are in this faulty measure, and, 
still worse, some of them exhibit both styles inter- 

Another form is produced by bringing the two long 
ami tli(! two short lines together; thus: — 

" t'ar o'er the glowing western main 
llis wistful brow was upward rais'd. 
Where like an angel's train.

Another modificatiou in tliis quatrain was formed by 
making all the verses octo-syllabic, which form is known 
:\ii long measure ; thus: — 

"Thy precious things whate'or they be, 

That hnunt and vex thee, heart, and brain, 
Look to the Cross, and Ihou shalt see 
How thou niajbt turn them all to gain." 

Another form of this stanza makes the four lines 

rhyme in couplets ; thus : — 

" Abide with me from morn till eve, 
For without tlieo 1 cannot live; 
Abide with me when niglit is nigh, 
For without Thee I dare not die." 

Again, an alternate rhyming quatrain may be con- 
joined to one rhyming in couplets, when a stanza of tho 
following form is produced : — 

" Thus in the dew of youth she ^hono, 

Thus in the morn of beauty fell; 
Ev(!n while we gazed, tho form was gone, 

The life became inv'sible ; 
The last best birth, wiih her last breath. 
Came in the dark disguise of death ; 
Grief fiU'd her parent's homo of love, 
But joy her Father's house above." 

When the first and fourth, and second and third 
rhyme together, that form of verse is produced which 
Tennyson has rendered so familiar in his affecting In 
Mmnuriam : — 

" Sjihore all your lights around, above; 

Sleep, gentle heavens, before the prow ; 
Sleep, gentle winds as he sleeps now ; 
My friend, the brother of my love ; 

" My Arthur, whom I shall not see 
Till all my widowed race be run ; 
Dear as the mother to the son. 
More than my brothers are to mc." 

There is another form of stanza produced by doubling 
Ihc first and third lines ; thus : — 

" When sorrow all our heart would ask, 
Wo need not shun our daily task, 

And hide ourselves for calm ; 
The hi-rbs we seek to heal our wuo 
Familiar l)y our pathway grow, 

Our common air is ba'm." 


Or l)v ti-ebliuij: them : — 

" Well might you guess what vision bright 
Wri3 present to his raptur'd siglit, 
Even as reflected streams of light 
Their solar source betray. 

The glory which our God surrounds. 
The son of Blan, th' atoning wounds — 
He sees them all ; and earth's dull bouads 
Are melting fast away." 

Wlien the common measure stanza has the first lino 

di mini shed by two syllables, it is then called short mea- 

euro ; thus : — 

" The fountain in its source 

No draught of summer fears ; 
The fartlier it pursues its cou-se, 
The nobler it appears." 

Another form of stanza is produced by adding a 
rliyuiing couplet to this (^iiatraiu ; thus : — 

" Night is the time to pray ; 
Our Saviour oft withdrew 
To desert mountains far away ; 

So will his followers do, 
Steal from the throng to haunts untioi, 
And commune there alone with God." 

Or thus : — - 

" But like a white swan down a troubled stream, 
Whose ruffling pinion hath the power to fling 
Aside the turbid drops which darkly gleam, 

And mar the freshness of her snowy wing, — 
So thou, with queenly grace and gentle pride, 
Along the world's dark waves in purity dost glide." 

We find also, in the search fw variety, that a measure 
oljive syllables has not been i-ejected :— 

" Go not, happy day, 

From the shining fields, 
Go not, happy day. 
Till the maiden yields. 

" Rosy is the West, 
Rosy is tie South, 
Roses are her checks 
And a rose her mouth." 

The descent from five to four syllable.':, or two lanibio 
feet, brings us to the shortest measure in English poetry. 


One could scarcely believe that eo mtich could be packeil 
into sncli narrow bounds as he will find iu the following 

linos : — 

" But I'll come in 
Before my Irss 
Mi^ farthor tr ss, 
As sure to win 
UndiT His cross. 

" Sin, Death, and Hell, 
His glorious name 
Quite overcame ; 
Yet I rebel, 
And slight the same." 

We seem to have borrowed the tercet or triplet fi'om 
the Italians, but iu a less artificial style, as each tercet 
is independent of the other instead of having the rhymes 
of the adjoining stanzas interwoven. Milton seoras to 
hnve imitated this measure iu his rendering of the vii. 
Psalm :- - 

" Let th' enemy pursue my soul, 
And overtake it, let him tread 
lily life down to the earth, and roll 

" In the dust my glory dead, 
In the dust and there outspread. 
Lodge it with dishonour foul." 

James Montgomery has written an account of a 
Voyage round the world in triplets, which he thus pa- 
trioticall}' concludes : — 

" I have seen them one by one, 
Every shore beneath the sun. 
And my voyage now is done, 

" While I bid them uU be blest, 
Britain is my home, my rest ; 
Sline own land ! I love thee best." 

But the most considerable poem in this stanza is tho 
remarkable Tivo Voices of the Poet Laureate, of which 
the concluding stanzas may be given as a specimen : — 

" And forth into the fields I wont, 
And Nature's living motion lent 
The pulse of hope to discontent. 

" I wondered at tho beauteous hours, 
Till) slow result of winter showers ; 
You scarce could see the grass for flowers. 


' I wundered while I inictd aloiii^: 
Tlio woods weie fill'd so full of sun;?, 
'J'hero secm'd no room for sense of wrong. 

"So variously secm'd all things wrought, 
I marvell'd how tl e mind was hrought, 
To anchor by one gloomy thought ; 

" And wherefore rather I made choice, 
To commune with that barren voice; 
Tliun him that said, " Rejoice! rejoice!" 

The Sonnet, as its name indicates, is also of Italian 
origin. It is composed in ten-syllable verse, and is con- 
fined to fourteen lines. The first eight lines have but 
two rhymes, which, with the exception of the first and 
eighth, rhyme in pairs ; the last six have likewise but 
two rhymes, but they rhyme altcrnatel}'. This descrip- 
tion will be better understood by the following example, 
in which Milton has strictly adhered to the Italian 
model : — 


" When faith and love, which parted from thee never, 
Had ripen'd tliy just soul to dwell with God, 
I\reekly thou did«t resign this earthly load 
Of de ith, called life, which us from life doth sever. 

" Thy works and alms, and all thy good endeavour 
Stay'd not behind, nor in the grave were trod ; 
But as faith pointed with her golden rod, 
Follow'd thee up to joy and bliss for ever. 

" Love led them on, and faith who knew them best 
Thy handmaids, clad them o'er with purple bciams 
And azure wings, that up they flew so drest , 
" And spake the tiuth of theo in glorious themes 

I5cfore the Jud^e, who thenceforth bade thee rest 
And drink thy fill of pure immortal streams."' 

bc-wles revived the sonnet in modern times ; Words- 
>v!)rth still farther rendered it fanailiai-, and no incon- 
siderable portion of the recently published volume of 
Uean Alford consists of sonnets. All these, however, 
have deviated considerably from the model we have pre- 
sented, in the arrangement of the rhymes. Perhaps 
the greatest departure consists in arranging the first 
twelve lines in three independent stanzas, in each of 
which the lines rhyme alternately, and concluding the 
whole by the last two lines in the form of a rhjming 


couplet, in which a forther liberfc)^ hiis been taken, but 
rarel}', in making the last line an Alexandrine, The fol- 
lowing example is taken from the volume to which we 
have last alluded : — 

"to wixteu. 
" Wfleomo, stern Winter, though thy Tjrows are bour.d 
With no fresh flowers, and ditties none thou hast 
But the wild music of the sweejiing hlast ; 
Welcome this chilly wind, that snatches round 
The brown loaves in quaint eddies ; we have long 
Panted in wearying heat ; skies always bright, 
And dull return of never-clouded light, 
Sort not with hearts that gather food for song. 
Rather, dear "Winter, I would foith with thee, 
Watching thee disattire the earth ; and roam 
On the bleak heaths that stretch about my home, 
Till I'ound the flat horizon I can see 
The purple frost-belt ; then to firesida-chair. 
And sweetest labour of poetic care." 

The Ottava rima, or, as it is called, in our prosody, the 
Spenserean stanza, is also of Italian growth, only modi- 
fied by Spenser's concluding it with an Alexandrine 
line, which gives it a broader basis, or a more majestic 
Bweep. It is in this stanza that the bewitching Faerie 
Queen is described ; Beattie revived it in his pensive 
Minstrel; Thomson employed it in his Castle of Indol- 
ence; Southey in his Tale of Paraguay; Campbell in 
his Gertrude of Wyoming ; Small in his Highlands ; and 
its full powers were exhibited in the wanderings of the 
sublime and bitter Ghilde Harold. 

This stanza in its structure bears a close resemblance 
to the sonnet. It consists, however, of only oiine lines ; 
the first four rhyme alternately, the fifth uniformly takes 
up the rhyme of the fourth, and the concluding line 
rhymes with the preceding. An extract from the last 
of these works will illustrate the strucb.ire of this noble 
stanza : — 

" The eky is chang(;d ! — and such a change ! night, 
And f-torm, and darkness, ye are wondrous strong, 
Yet lovely in your strength, as is the light 
Of a dark eye in woman ! Far along, 
From peak to peak, the rattling crags among 
Leaps the live thunder! Not from one lone cloud, 
Hut every mount.tin now hath found a tongue, 
And .Jura answers, through licr misty sliroiid, 
baek to the joyous Alps, who call to her aloud ! " 


The true Ottava rima, however, as used by Ariosto, 
presents six lines rhyming alternately, and two of the 
same length rhyming together at the close. 

The following stanza, from Rose's translation, exhibits 
this structure : — 

" Let him inako haste his feet to disongaj^e, 

Nor lime his wings whom love hath made a prize. 

For love, in fine, is nought but frenzied rage, 
By universal suffrage of the wise : 

And albeit some may shew themselves more sage 
Than Roland, they but sin in other guise. 

For what proves folly more than on this shelf. 

Thus for another to destroy one's self i" " 

Octosyllabic verse, in which the lines rhyme in coup- 
lets, has been mucb used in narrative poetry from the 
time of Chaucer, who composed in it his House of Fame, 
whicli Pope, in heroic verse, has rendered so famous as 
the Temple of Fame. It requires great attention to 
counteract its " fatal facility " of leading to diffusion and 
weakness. Much of the narrative portions of Sir Walter 
Scott's poetical romances is written in this style : — 

" At length the freshening western blast 
Aside the shroud of battle cast ; 
And, first, the ridge of mingled spears 
Above the brightening cloud appears ; 
And in the smoke the pennons ilew, 
As in the storm the white sea-mew. 
Then marked they, dashing broad and far, 
The broken billows of the war, 
And plumed crests of chieftains brave 
Floating like foam upon the wave." 

These may be considered the principal, they are by no 
means all the forms, in which the ingenuity of our poets 
has presented what may be considered our lyric 
Iambic quatrain. 

We shall now briefly illustrate our other kinds of ver- 
sification. As the Iamb consists of a short and a long 
syllable, so the Trochee consists of a long and a short. 
Verses characterised by this foot are commonly of the 
lyric kind, and the accent on the first syllable gives the 
verse an abrupt and rapid manner. 

Locksley Hall is a poem of considerable length in the 
trochaic measure :— 


•* Not in vain the distance beacon* Forward, forward, let us 

Let the preut world spin for ever down the ringing grooves of 

Throunh the shadow of the globe we sweep into the younger daj' ; 
Better fifty years in Europe than ii cycle in Calliay." 

Poe's reniarkal>Ie poem, The Haven, is also composed in 
tliis measure, ami in its structure sliews a wonderful 
command of language regulated by a delicate sense of 
hannonv : — 

'■ Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and 
In there stepped a stately Raven of the saintly days of yore. 
Ni't the least obeisance made he; not a minute stopped oJ 

stayed he ; 
But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door — 
Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door — 
Perched, and sat, and nothing moie." 

Neither has it been considered unworthy of a. place 
in our hymnology : — 

" Pilgrim, burthen'd witli thy sin, 
Come tile w.iy to Zioii's gate. 
Then, ti 1 nier';y let thee, in, 

Knock and weep, and w;itch and wait 
" Knock ! — He knows the sinner's cry : 

Weep ! — He loveK the mourner's tears : 
M":ctch ! — for saving grace ia nigh : 
Wait!- till heavenly light appears." 

^[ontgfunery's Wanderer of Sivitzerland is also com- 
[)osud in this measure : — 

" Long before thy sun descend, 

May ihy woes and wanderings cease ; 
Late and lovely be thine end ; 

lfoj)e and triumph, joy and peace! 
" As mr lakes, at day's decline, 

Brif;hten thro' the gathering gloom, 
May thy latest moments shine 
'i hro' the nightfall of the tomb." 

Various combinations of this verse, with the addition 
of two or more lines occur; but it is unnecessary to 
multiply examples; let the following suffice : — 

" Onward, onward may wo press 

Through the path of duty ; 
Virtue is true hajijiine.'^.s, 

K.xcellencc, true bt'auty. 
.Minds arc of celestial birth ; 
Make we then a heaven of eartti,' 


This verse is not unfreqnently employed iji those 
lyric.iil poems, called Anacreontic : — 

"Little inmate, full of mirth, 
C'liiiping on my kitchen hcurth, 
\Vhursoe'er he thine abode, 
Alwiiys harlanger of good, 
Pay mc for thy warm retreat 
Willi u song more soft and sweet; 
In retarn thou shall receive 
Such a strain as I can give." 

Let US nf.w close this form of line with a feminine 
syllal)le, or double ending; that is, let the last word have 
the accent on the penult syllable, and we produce the 
measure in which Longfellow composed Lis Soug of 
Ulawallui : — 

*' She was thinl<ing of a hnntor, 
From another tribe and country, 
V"Uiig and tall, and very handsome. 
Who one morning, in the Springtime 
Came to buy her father's arrows, 
Sat and rested in the wigwam, 
I<ingered long about the door-way, 
Looking back as he departed." 

This verse may be compared to the seventh note in 
music, which has been characteristically called the seek- 
ing note, as if the ear sought another note on which to 
rest, as a more satisfactory close. It has accordingly 
been alternated with a line ending in a male syllable, 
and thus is formed a quatrain which is frequently em- 
ployed in the minor poems of the German poets, as in 
Schiller's Pilgrim, Longing, &c. ; and in which Longfel- 
low composed his sweet, bat defective Psalm of Life : — 

" Lives of great men nil remind us 
\Ve can make our lives sublime; 
And, departing, I'uve behind us 
Footprints on the sands of time ; 

Footprints, that perhaps another, 

Sailing o"er life's .solemn main, 
A forlorn and shipwreck'd brother, 

Seeing, shall take heart again." 

Tnere yet remains to be considered our Anapesiic. 
verse, in which the characteristic feet are composed of 
two short syllables and one long. One of the short 
syllabi erf piuy be awauting, in which case the line beerins 


with an lamb, The lines are not confined to a cevtaiii 
number of feet, but lines either of three or four feet are 
the most common. From its general use, we might 
infer that it is best calculated for the expression ot pen- 
sive subjects, as in Shenstone's Pastoral Ballad : — 

" I have fuii'ndl out a gift'| for my fa'ir ; 

1 have fou'nd | where the wo'od| -pigeons breed; 
But let me the plunder forbear ; 
She will say 'twas a barbarous deed." 

Or iu Beattie's Hermit: — 

'• At the clo'se] of the da'y,| when the ha'm|let is still, 
And mo'rltals the swee'ts| of forge't| fulness pro'vo,| 
Whore nought but the torrent is heard on the hill, 
And nought but the nightingale's song in the grove." 

And yet, as if to shew the versatility of our metrea, 
this very verse, in couplets, has been employed by Gold- 
smith in his Retaliation, by Anstey in his New Bath 
Guide, and by numerous imitators, in light satirical and 
humorous compositions: — 

" If our l;i'nd|lovd suppli'es | us with be'ef ] and with fi'sh, | 
Let each guest bring himself, and he brings the best dish." 


Frequent attempts have been made to introduce 
S'piiie of the classical metres into English poetry, but the 
p(i[)ular ear seems incapable of relishing them. To 
some of these attempts we shall briefly advert. The 
hexameter, which has been considered the noblest of the 
Greek and Roman measures, and which has been intro- 
duced into German versification, has been attempted by 
Southdy, Longfellow, Alford, &c. When this verse is 
pui'cly dactylic, with the necessary exception of the last 
loot, it has too much of the cadence of a horse at the 
canter, as in the hackneyed illustration — 

" Qaadrupedante ptttrcm sonitu quatit utigula campum ; " 

Tliis is the measure in which Longfellow has com- 
posed, and, as some think, spoiled his tales of Evange- 
line and the Courtship of Miles Standish; from the latter 
we give the following illustration: — 


" Dimly the | shadowy | form of the | May-Flower | riding at | 

IJockcd on the rising tide, and ready to sail on the morrow ; 
Heard the voices of men througli tlie mist, the rattle of cordage 
Thrown on the deck, the shouts of the mate, and the sailors' ' Ay, 

Clear and distinct, but not loud, in the dripping air of the twilight. 
Still for a moment he stood, and listened and stai-ed at the 
vessel," &c. 

When a greater variety of feet is introduced and the 
peculiar dactylic cadence is lost, the verse seems so 
closely to resemble English prose, that the poetical 
rhythm is scarcely perceived, as in the following 
lines : — 

" Still, one cannot believe that, if North and South were to sever, 
Slavery could endure ten years in its present condition." 

Were these lines written without break, one would 
not readily perceive that they were intended to be 
poetical ; for they could be easily matched by quotations 
from the prose translation of the psalms ; thus : — 

Why do the heathen rage and the people imagine a vain thing ? 

God is gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a 

Several excellent specimens of hexameters, with an 
occasional slight alteration, might be found in Lord 
Macaulay's Essay on Dryden : — 

" Who in a sea fight 
Thoucht of the price of the china which beat out the brains of a 

Dr Watts imitated the well-known Sapphic verse ; 
but, as it nearly agrees with the rhythm of some of our 
secular songs, this association is certainly not calculated 
to fit it for serious poetry : — 

" When the | fierce north | wind with his ( airy | forces, 
liears up the Baltic to a foaming fury ; 
And the red lightning, with a storm of hail comes 

Rushing almain down; 
How the poor sailors stand amaz'd and tremble, 
While the hoarse thunder, like a bloody trumpet. 
Hoars a loud onset to the gai)ing waters, 

Quick to devour them." 


Tlic rhythm of these verses will readily suggest to 
the reader The Widow of Southey, and the Needy Knife- 
Grinder of Canning. 

Tennyson, in his recent volume, has given a few 
specimens of " erjDeriments" in other classical metres. 
The first, called Boiidicea, is in Trochaic Tetrameter, 
which properly consists of eight trochees, but consider- 
able variations are admitted, of which our Laureate has 
availed himself, by fi-equently introducing a dactyl in 
the sixth foot, and occasionally closing his line with a 
catalectic syllable : — 

" Roar'd as | when the | rolling | breakers | boom and | blanch on 

the I preci I pices, 
YeU'd as when tlie winds of winter tear an oak on a promontory, 
So the silent colony hearing her tumultuous adversaries." 

The second of his experiments is entitled Milton, and 
is composed in Horatian verse. Tlie first two lines are 
greater Alcaic ; the third line is Archilochian, and the 
fourth, less Alcaic. The nature of the feet will be per- 
ceived by the scansion signs which we have placed over 
one of the stanzas : — 

•' SIip:ht|y mouth'd ( in|ventor of | harmonies, 
skiJl'd to sing of Time or Eternity, 

God-gift]ed origan-voice | of Engjlani, 

Milton, a ] name to re|sound for | ages." 
The last of these "experiments" is in PJiahecian, or 
JieitdecasijUahic verse, forming a line of eleven syllables, 
disposed in the following feet, chiefly trochaic, although 
Catullus, to whom the Laureate refers, took certain 
liberties with the first and second : — 

" Look, I I como to the | test, a | tiny | poem, 
All composed in a metre of Catullus." 

As the anapest consists of two short and one long 
syllable, so the dactyl consists of one long and two short. 
Of hnclijlic Tetrameter or Alcmanian verse, the follow- 
ing specimen is from Southey's Soldier's Wife : — 

•* Wu'ury wayl-wand'erer,| lan'guid and | sick' at heart. 
Travelling painfully over the rugged road, 
Wild-visagcd Wanderer, ah, for thy ht.uvy chance! 


" Sorely tliy little one drafts by thoo bare-footed, 
Cold "is the baby that hangs by thy bending back, 
Meagre and livid and screaming its wretchedness." 

These stanzas, even from the pen of Southcy, prove 
the difficulty of writing in English dactyls ; for of these 
six lines, only two end with true dactyls ; besides, as 
Robert Ilall said on substituting pierce hv penetrate, " no 
man who considered the force of the English language 
would use a word of three syllables" at the close of a 
sentence, " but from absolute necessity." This must 
have been felt by the ancients, who concluded the true 
dact3'lic tetrameter with a spondee and not a dactjd, and 
the following may therefore be considered a better illus- 
tration : — 

" Wha't though you | tell me each | ga'y little | rover 
Shrinks from the breath of the first autumn day ; 
Surely 'tis better, when summer is over, 

To die when all fair things are fading away." 

Some prosodians, however, have considerered our ana- 
pestic verse as strictly a dactylic measure ; but we dis- 
sent from this decision. 

Upon the publication of Coleridge's Chris'abel, he 
stated that it had been constructed upon a new prin- 
ciple ; that the number of syllables was not to be re- 
garded, but those syllables on which the emphasis fell. 
As these were four, so the number of syllables in a line 
might be but four ; but as two or three feeble syllables 
might be added to each of them, the number of syllables 
might extend to twelve, and yet the melody of the verse 
be preserved. It was astonishing that Coleridge should 
have called such a principle as this new, seeing that, to 
a considerable extent, it was the very principle on which 
the classical hexameter had been constructed, of which 
he himself had given a description and illustration, and 
that which is so conspicuous in our ancient ballads. 
This rhythmical, as opposed to numerous verse, has 
been extensively employed by many of our poets, as im- 
posing upon them less restraint than a luore correct 
prosody would have required. 


Next to the harmonious arrangement of syllables in 


verse, we may consider alliteration as a species of poeti- 
cal ornament. It is produced by a succession of words 
beginning with the same letter. It must have been intro- 
duced at a very early period, as we find it characterising 
no fewer than twelve poems in the Holy Scriptures. The 
number of the Hebrew letters, which is twenty-two, de- 
termined the length of these alliterative poems, of which 
each stanza begins with each letter in its alphabetical 
order. It is not necessary that we should desci'ibe the 
metrical structure of all these poems ; and, as the alli- 
terative composi'ion of the cxix. Psalm must be familiar 
to all, from the names of the letters being pi'efixed to 
each division of eight verses, we shall advert to the 
peculiarities that occur in the structure of the third 
chapter of the book of Lamentations. This poem con- 
sists of twenty-two stanzas ; each stanza contains three 
lines, and the initial letter of every stanza is also the 
initial letter of each line of that stanza. Any one whd 
consults a Faragrapli Bible will I'eadily perceive not only 
that the lines resemble :)ne another in length, and, pro- 
bably, if we could read the original aright, in the num- 
ber of S3'llables ; but also that each stanza exhibits a 
remarkable congruity In sense as well as in structure. 
The following stanzas will illustrate all these statements, 
with the exception of the alliteration : — 

" Mine enemies chased mo sore, like a bird without cause. 

They have cut off my life in the dungeon, and cast a stone upon 

Waters flowed over my head ; then I said, ' I am cut off! ' 

" I called upon thy name, Lord, out of the low dungeon. 
Thou hast heard my voice ; hide not thy face at my breathing, 

my cry. 
Tliou dfewest near in tlio day that I called upon thee; thou 

saidst, « Fear not !' " 

To what extent this alliterative ornament prevailed in 
the poetry of the Greeks and Romans, it is not easy to 
determine, as poems constructed by them on such a 
principle may not have come down to us ; or there may 
be, as was the case for a time in the Welsh poetry, a 
subtile alliteration in those that we possess, that has not 
yet been discovered. 

When, however, the more [lalpable alliteration of 


several adjaceut words occurred, it is evident that the 
poet did uot avoid it, if he did not court such a succes- 
sion of similar letters. As the Latin exercised a far 
greater influence in modifying our language than the 
Greek, we shall draw our illustrations only from the 
former. No sooner do we open the works of Virgil 
than we meet with numerous illustrations of the prin- 
ciple that regulated the construction of the Anglo- 
Saxon poetry, in the very first Eclogue. We shall only 
quote a few of them : — 

" T\(yrQ, tn pai'ulffl rccubans .'ub icgmme fagi 
Silvcs/rem tenui Musam medii^aris avena. 

" JFbrtunate senex, hie inter /lumina nota 
Et/ontes saeros/rigus captabis opacum. 

" Carmina nulla canam ; non. me pascente, cap' llao, 
Florentem cytisum et salices carpetis amaras." 

If we take but a cursory look through the Odes ^i 
Horace, we shall meet with abundant illustrations : — • 

" Sunt, quos curriculo pulverem Olympicum 
Cbllegisse juvat. 

" Pestomque a j!?opulo etpvincipe Cajsare in 

" Quis non Latino sanguine 7;inguior 
Canij!;us se/julcris im/'ia jf^rajlia. 

" Quo graves Persae melius j»?erirent, 
Audiet j:?ugnas vitio ^;arentum. 

" Pinu3 aut im7;ulsa cu7;resaus Euro, 
Procidit late ^josuitque coUum in 
Pulvere Teucro." 

The following lines are too remarkable to be omitted, 
and, although there is no alliterative word in the second 
line, yet i^oscat ccurs in the line immediately preced- 
ing : — 

" /'allida Mors asquo pulsat ^ede ^au^erum tabernas 
Rogumquo turres." 

As Lucretius is at hand, we shall allow him to fur- 
nish his quota of evidence on this point, and so dismiss 
our Latin witnesses : — 

" Iiide ferae ^ecudes jiJcrsultant j[?abula laeta, 
Et rayyidos tranant amneis. 


" Suave, «mri wiagno turbantibus aequora ventis,

Seeing that alliteration prevailed so extensively, more 
especially in the poetic compositions of the Celtic and 
Gothic dialects, the assertion of Barry, in his Bcscriptiun 
of Wales, in the twelfth century, will be the more 
readily received. Both the English and Welsh, accord- 
ing to him, were so fond of this figure of speech, which 
he°calls Anyimnination, that they considered no composi- 
*non elegant, but rather rude and barbarous, in which 
alliteratfon was not plentifully employed. Thej would 
miss what they had been accustomed to account a poeti- 
cal elegance, and conclude that the poem had been care- 
lessly composed or that the poet had but a paucity of 


A few specimens may be extracted from one or two of 
our ancient poets, in order to show to what an extent 
composition of this kind coald be carried. 

The following specimen is from the Prolouge to the 
Eighth Book of Douglas's Virgil, which consists of four- 
teen similar stanzas : — 

•• Quliat wikkituess, qubat wauthrylt now in waild wulkis ! 
Bale has banist blythnes, boist grete brag blawis, 
Praltis are repute policy and perrelkis paukis, 
Dygnite is laide doun, durth to the dur drawis ; 
Of trattillis and of tragidyis the text of al talk is ; 
Lordis are left landles bo vnlele lawis, 
Burges bryngis hame the bothe to breid in the ballda; 
Knychtis are cowhubyis, and coinmouns plukkis crawis; 
Clerkis for vncunnandnos mysknawis ilk wycht ; 

^V_\flis wald liaif al thare wyl, 

Yneiich is not half fyl, 

Is nowthir ressoun nor skyl 

In erd haldin rycbt." 

Montgomerie in his Cherry and the Slae, thus expresses 
liimsolf : — 


" 'J'he cusliiit cniudH, tlio corLic cries, 
The cuckoo cucks, the pratling pyva 

To gcck her they begin ; 
The jargoun or the jangling jayi^s 
The crackling craws, and keckling kajes 

They deav'd me with their din : 
The painted pawn with Argos eyes, 

Can on his niayock call, 
The turtle wails in -.vither'd trees. 
And Echo answcr'd all, 

Repeating with greeting 

How fair Narcissus tell, 
By lyiiig and spying 
His shadow in a well. 

Poems continued to be written in English, the verse 
of which was merely alliterative, down to the commence- 
ment of the sixteenth century, and in Scottish, to a still 
later period. 

Tn such an extent had alliteration taken hold of the 
popular ear that we find it in the jingling titles of books, 
as Scot of Scotstarvit's Staggering State of Scots States- 
mev ; in many of our proverbs, as " far fowls have fair 
feathers," and even in sermons, especially in the proposi- 
tions that constituted the several " heads " of dis- 

It is remarkable, however, that the taste that intro- 
duced rhyme began to reject alliteration ; for we find 
the critics, and even some of the poets themselves, con- 
demning this principle that had been so generally prac- 
tised and greatly admired, so early as the time of 
Chaucer, who, although there are many grucct'ul in- 
stances scattered through his works, yet rejected it in 
the amplitude which it had acquired, and may be con- 
sidered as indirectly condemning it in the introduction 
to the Parson's Tale, who represents himself as a 
"soutliren man," in accordance with the prevailing idea 
that the minstrel or harper was specially of the " north 
countiie," and, therefore, acknowledges his ignorance of 
alliteration, which had been con.sidci'ed essential to 
poetry : — 

" I can not geste, rum, raf, ruf, by letter 
Ne, [truly], ryni hold I but litel better. 
An.^, theretore, if you lust, 1 wol not gl iso, 
I wol you telle a iiiery tide in prose," &o. 


So intimately, however, had it been interwoven with 
tlie texture of the poetical fabric, that, in 1575, when 
Gascoigne published his Notes concerning the making of 
Verse or Rhyme in English he exhorts the student to 
avoid it. Shakspeare, in 1598, had still occasion to 
ridicule the practice ; although his ridicule could have 
been pointed only at the excessive use of this ornament, 
as his own works exhibit many striking specimens of 
alliteration. The pedantic schoolmaster, Holofernes, 
having obtained loermi.ssion to read "an extemporal 
epitaph on the death of the deer," which, to humour 
the ignorant, he liad called a pricket, says, " I will some- 
thing effect the letter ; for it argues facility," and then 
read the epitaph beginning — 

" The praiseful princess pierc'd and prick'd 
A pretty pleasing pricket ; 
Some say a sore ; but not a sore, 
Till now made sore by shooting," &c. 

" We have," in the comedy which we have quoted, it 
has been said, " many of the forms in which cleverness 
is exhibited as opposed to wisdom, and false refinement 
as opposed to simplicity." 

This ornament appearsin the most complicated form in 
the poetical compositions of the nations that inhabited the 
northern districts of Europe, and hence the extent to 
which we find it prevailing in the poetry of the Anglo- 
Saxons, and even pervading the works of our modern 
poets. Without describing and illustrating all the refine- 
ments in alliteration that the ingenuity of the bards of 
many generations had produced, we shall advert to that 
only whichwasmostobvious andcommon. This consisted 
in making either all the principal words in a -verse of 
some length begin with the same letter; or, in lines of 
less extent, making at least two of the principal words 
in one line and one word in the next line, begin witli 
the same letter. Thus the fathers of our literatm-e, to 
adopt the contemptuous language of Milton, put the 
iin'dinjr of like sounds at the be^-innings, instead of the 
endings of words. A more refined species of allitera- 
tion has been pointed out in the Cymbric poctrj^, Avhich 
placed corresponding vowel or diphthongal sounds in 
the middle of the words of the adjacent lines, and a 


similar aiTanf,aMncnt may frequently be perceived in the 
verses of Anacreon. The following specimen of the 
celebrated poem of Cacdmon, which was composed before 
680, the year of his death, will illustrate these prin- 
ciples : — 

" Wera wuldor fasier, 
8wa he wundra ge-hwaas, 
ece dryhtcn, 
oord onstealde. 
He aercst ge-sceop 
ylda bearnum 
heofon to hrofe 
halig scyppcnd ! 
firum foldan, 
frea Alniilitii,' ! " 

This style has been very successfully imitated by 
Kingsley in his tale of Jlereivard, the last of the Encjlish. 
As his vessel, the Otter, sailed southwards from Kirk- 
wall, he cheerily sung to his men : 
" Lightly the long-snabo 

Leaps after tempests, 

Gaily the sun-gleam 

Glows after ram. 

In lahour and daring 

Lies luck for all mortals, 

Foul winds and foul witch- wives 

Fray women alone." 

As it is not our intention to give an historical sketch 
of the progress of the English language, but only a few 
illustrations of the peculiarities of its poetry ; so we now 
proceed to give a specimen of a work of the fourteenth 
century, of considerable length and no small merit, 
which was carefully consti'ucted on the alliterative prin- 
ciple. We allude to Langland's Fiers Ploughman. The 
following description of the Pardoner will remind the 
reader of Lindsay's description of the same character in 
his day : — ■ 

" There preached a pardoner, 

As he a priest were ; 

Brought forth a bull 

With many bishops' seals. 

And said that himself might 

As!<ailen hem all, 

Of falsehe le of fasting. 

Of avowes y-broken. 


Levrcd men loved it well 
And liked his words ; 
Lomeii up kneeling 
To ki^sin his bulls : 
- He bouched them with his brevet, 
And bleared hir even, 
And r;iu^ht with his ragman 
Kmges and brooches." 

There can be little doubt, that the affectation displaj^ed 
in crowding every line with alliteration, by which inap- 
propriate words must often have been employed, and the 
sense not untrcquently obscured, at last offended a more 
refined taste and led to its disuse. That there is some- 
thing, however, in alliteration that is gratifying to the 
reader, and ornamental to poetic diction, is evident from 
the practice of poets down to the present day. Upon a 
careful inspection of their poems, however, it will appear 
that it is so sparingl}"- and unobtrusively introduced, 
that we believe many readers of poetr3-, while they are 
gratified through this graceful use of alliteration, are not 
aware to what their gratification is owing, just as when 
one is enjoj-ing " the cheering but not inebriating" cup, 
he does not pause to think of the due proportion in which 
the several ingredients have been combined. That the 
English language is not essentially or extensively alli- 
terative, may be proved by the facts, that, when it is 
spoken or written naturally or unaffectedl}^ the attention 
of the hearer or reader is not arrested by the alliterative 
nature of the sentences, and that it requires, therefore, 
no inconsiderable effort, or even a gift that was considered 
peculiar to the poet, in order to render his sentences 
both comparatively natural and alliterative; and that, 
when a speaker expresses himself happily even by an 
alliterative antithesis, the sentence not untrcquently ex- 
cites such applause as would be commanded by a suc- 
cessful witticism. This observation is farther confirmed 
by the large amount of poetry that we now possess 
which is not alliterative, or in which the alliteration is 
so sparingly and naturally introduced that it ma}- elude 
the observation even of those that are familiar with this 
figure, and that it requires a special search to detect it 
in its lurking places. Alliteration, however, may ai-iso 
from a principle involved in the vcr3' constitution of oar 


language, and may not be regarded as the mere result of 
a ready selection of words from a copious vocabulary, be- 
cause these words must be pertinent to the subject; 
unless, as Chaucer's Parson has expressed it, the com- 
position is a piece of mere rum, raff, ruff', for the purpose 
of amusing the ear with the jingle of alliteration, with- 
out regard to sense, and it is probable that there were 
compositions nearly approaching to this character, by 
which alliteration was brought into contempt. When, 
however, a subject is proposed for discussion or descrip- 
tion, it is surely somewhat remarkable, that so many of 
the words, appropriate to the subject, should begin with 
the same letter. It is this consideration that probably 
would lead down to the roots of our language, and might 
discover the cause, why it is so difficult altogether to 
eradicate alliteration from our speech. Thus wei-e we 
to take gold for an illustration, we should find that, 
under some aspects, it glows, and in others, gleams ; all 
grasp at it, and many groan under it, when they have 
received it in gowpens ; it gilds the saloon, it glitters on 
the brow of beauty, and excites the gaze of the multi- 
tude ; it has been used as a gag to the loquacious ; a 
goad to the indolent, a guerdon to the poet, and, rarely, 
a gift to the meritorious. This subject, however, belongs 
rather to the profound philologist than to the mere 
describer of the externals of our English poetry. 

Those who are familiar with the contempt in which 
Milton held the tinklings of final syllables, or rhyme, 
will, perhaps, be surprised to find, on a close inspection, 
how much he imitated the Anglo-Saxons in the jinglings 
of initial consonants, which, on the same principle, may 
be held, and by some were held, in equal contempt. 
The prevailing principle of the Saxon alliteration was 
that at least tico important words — that is, generally 
substantives and verbs, to the exclusion of adverbs or 
prepositions, should begin with the same letter, and one 
such word in the next line. Now, in addition to many 
pairs of alliterative adjectives and nouns throughout the 
Paradise Lost, such as " dark destruction," " hazard 
huge," "fixed fate," "silent stream," "warring winds," 
" vast vacuit}^" " dark descent," " wearied wings," 
" nocturnal note," " fresh fountain," " fishy fume," 


" cranrerj cliff," &c. ; and many instances of alliterative 
words not iii immediate coDJuuction, but yet occui-nng 
in the same line, as " to make them mirth used all his 
miprht," " to taste that only tree," " which declares his 
di^rnity — while they keep watch or nightly rounding 
walk," " the bars of hell an errand bad no doubt," 
" there sitting where thou durst not soar," " single 
against thee wicked and thence weak," " for in his look 
defiance lours," " the fiend thus answered, frowning 
stern," "argues no leader but a liar traced," "leaning 
half raised with looks of cordial love ; " — we find such 
instances of a still more complicated alliteration so fre- 
quently occurring in the course of this greatest of epics 
as to leave no reasonable doubt of the influence that the 
structure of the Anglo-Saxon poetry had exercised on 
the mind of Milton, and that, however much he may 
have contemned the like endings of rhyme, he did not 
reject the frequent use of the similar beginnings of 
alliteration. Thus it will generally, we do not say 
universally, be found, that, when two important words 
occur in any line of the Paradise Lost, beginning with 
the same letter, at least one important word or a syllable 
in such word, will be found either in the preceding oi* 
in the following line, beginning with the same letter, 
according to the very practice of him who first sung o\ 
Paradise Lost, and whose highest praise is, that the 
reader of his poem is reminded of his great successor. 

This assertion is illustrated by the very first two lines 
of the work : — 

" Of Man's/irst disobidiunce, and the^/ruit 
Of that/orbidden tree, &c." 

To quote the many instances in which this practice 
occurs would be to quote a large portion of the poem. 
\Vc shall, therefore, present only a few, and leave the 
reader to discover others, which he will do in the course 
of every score of lines, as he peruses any portion of ilup 
immortal work : — 

" Beguiled by /air idolatresses /ell 
To idols /oul. 

' The Syriau i)anisels to lament his fato 
In amourous t^itties all a summer's day, 


" Tears swch aa Angels tt-'eep, Lurst forth ; at last 
U'oids interitove with sighs found out their uay. 

" i'reccdence, none, whose juortion is so small 
Of jwresent^ain." 

" Intermit no iratch 
A ,ainst a wakeful foe, while I abroad 
Through all the coasts of dark f/estruction seek 
7)eliverance for us all : this enter;;rise 
None shall jaartako with me. Thus saying rose 
The Monarch and ^jreventcd all reply." 

" Or in th(! emptier traste, resembling air, 
// eighs his spread wings. 

" To stoop with wearied wings and willing feet 
On the bare outside of this ivorld. 

" Fall circumvented thus by/raud, though join'd 
With his own /oily. 

" And dying rise, and Hsing with him raise 
His brethren ransomed. 

" IJis iack was turn'd, but not his irightnoss hid 
Of beaming sunny rays." 

Mark how the tei'iuiuating words in nearly each of the 
following lines are all alliterative : — 

. " Yet not rejoicing in his speed though iold 
Far off and fearless, nor with cause to ioast, 
TJegins his dire attempt, which nigh the Airth 
Now rolling ioils in his tumultuous ireast, 
And like a devilish engine Jack recoils." 

But, obliged to omit passages equally pertinent in 
every page, we shall quote almost the last lines, as prov- 
ino- that this peculiarity of style which this inimitable 
poem exhibited at the beginning characterised it to the 
close : — 

" Waved over by that /laming brand, the gate 
With dreadful /aces thronged and/iery arms. 

"They hand in hand, with wandering stops and slow 
Through Eden took their solitary way." 

Our space precludes us from giving specimens of alli- 
teration from other poets ; otherwise we should have 
found examples in every page of Rogers and Crabbe. 
We therefore omit all these, and content ourselves by 
stating that it was not despised by Byron, as a few 


from numerous examples, taken from Childe Harold, 
will amply prove : — 

' My mind may lose its/orcc, my blood its /ire 
And my/nime perish even in conquering pain. 

•• But here where murder ireath'd her Aloody steam ; 
And here where buzzing nations choked the ways. 

" 'I'lie iend 
Of stirring branches, and the Aud which brings 
'1 he swiftest thought of ieauty. 

" The/iuld of A-L'edom, /action, /ame and blood: 
Here a jiyroud /people's /passions were exhaled. 

•' And 1 have loved thee, Ocean ! and my joy 
Of youthful sports was on thy Zireast to be 
liorne, like thy iubWos, onward : from a ioy 
I wanton'd with thy breakers." 

"We shall conclude these illustrations of alliteration 
with a few examples from the last production of our 
Poet Laureate, whose tuneful ear and careful study of 
Lis art have detected the graceful use of this Saxon 
ornament in the practice of his great Master in harmo- 
nious verse — " the mighty-mouthed inventor of liarmo- 
aies" : — 

" /"aint as a/igure seen in early dawn 
Down at the/ar end of an avenue. 

" Bt-lield the dead flame of the fallen day 
Pass from the /)anil^h barrow overhead. 

" Scarce-rocking hor/uU-busted/igure-head 
Stared o'er the ripple /cathering from her bo-A'S: 
Then /oUowed calms. 

" Tne horse he rfrove, the boat he sold, the chill 
November r/awns and </ewy-glooming downs. 

" A /ator but a loftier Annie Zee, 

Fair-hair'd and tall, and from her /ifted hand 
Dangled a /ength of ribbon and a ring." 

" ioat'ng it in upon his weary irain, 
As tho' it were the iurtlien of a song." 

Alliteration also abounds in the Voyage : — 

" Warm broke the freeze against the irow, 
Dry iang tho taclcle, sang the sail ; 
The lady's head upon the prow, 

Caught the shrill salt and shcer'd the galo. '' 


In tlic Lh/Jls of the King, we meet with frequent ex- 
amples, and some of tliem alford instances of that alter- 
nate aUiteration that occurs so often in the Faerie Quctin ; 
thus . — 

" /)cath lila; a/riend*8 voice from a distant /ield." 


As an intermediate ornament between alliteration 
and perfect rhyme, a few remarks may be made on 
assonance. This can scarcely be regarded as a charac- 
teristic of English poetry in past times, and is certainly 
not to be considered as such in the present day ; but as 
it may be regarded as the principle on which those 
rhymes that Walker has called " allowable," but which 
in modei-n poetry would be called " intolerable," were 
introduced, it seems here to claim a passing notice. 
Assonance, therefore, is apeculiar correspondence insound 
in the termination of verses, less comjilete than that 
of rhyme. We think it may be detected in the poetry 
of Greece ; but it has been most carefully cultivated in 
the romantic and dramatic compositions of Spain. In 
assonance, while the vowels of the last accented syllable, 
and in all subsequent syllables are the same, the con- 
sonants must all be different, otherwise consonance or 
I'hyme would be produced. " Thus havharo, which has 
the accent on the antepenultimate, is an assonant 
with c«lamo and pldtano. B^^scas, which is accented 
on the penultima, is an assonant with c»r(m and s»ya. 
So in English, hard//, manl^, and carr^ would be asson- 
ants." Assonants, are not, however, exhibited in pairs, 
but are continued throughout the whole poem, without 
any other change than that of blank verse with the as- 
sonants. Assonants are always used by the classical 
dramatists of Spain, but in the lyric poetry of that 
country rhyme is more frequently adopted. This prin- 
ciple, we conceive, may account for what would now be 
accounted impeifect rhymes in our ballad poetry, and 
thus may have familiarised its use in poems of higher 
pretensions. This imperfection would be less perceived 
in the song or the ballad, because, as these poems were 
produced rather to be sung than read, and as the voice 



of the singer would dwell on tbe vowel sounds, it fol- 
lows that, if these were perfect, the terminating con- 
sonants would glide off without producing an unpleasant 
efi'ect on the ear of the listener. It is unuec;ssary to 
give examples of a practice so well known, especially 
as it is not now tolerated in poetical composition ; we 
shall merely note that, in glancing over some produc- 
tions of ancient minstrelsy, we find the following words 
associated with one another in the place of rhymes ; 
stand with man ; black with, hat ; sat with clap ; town 
with round ; ask with blast ; past with glass ; mark 
with hat ; heels with fields ; leek with sweet, &c., and 
the same principle may be seen in the following stanza 
of " the grand old ballad " of Sir Patrick Spence : — 

" forty miles off Aberdeen, 
It's fifty fathom deep, 
A.nd there lies good Sir Patrick Spence, 
\Vi' the Scots Lords at his feet." 


We have seen at what an early period the poets of 
Palestine began a certain number of lines or stanzas 
with the same letter ; it was, therefore, but a mode of 
this fashion to terrainaie certain poetical lines with tlju 
same letters or sounds, which constituted what has been 
termed consonance or rhyme. It is perhaps impossible 
to ti-ace this ornamental fringe, this purple band on the 
princely toga of the poet, to its origin ; but, although it 
appears to have been despised by the Greeks and their 
followers, the Romans, yet there is ground of belief, that 
it was early exhibited and admired in the East. We 
have found that it was unknown to the Anglo-Saxon 
poet, whose distinguishing ornament, like a fillet on his 
priestly brow, was alliteration ; and, as fashion in poetry 
as well as in other matters, has its times, so it may bo 
safely presumed, that, as alliteration began to ebb, so 
rhyme began to flow ; and, as in the case of two tides 
that run in opposite directions, there will be a middle 
space in which the direction of the current is doubtful, 
so we shall find a period in our literature when poems 
exhibited the double decoration of both alliteration and 

THE editor's I'KEFACE. xliii 

rli3Tne. The first of these, in the order of time, was a 
translation by Layamon of Waco's Le Brut cl'Aiiglderre ; 
aud, as the poena which he transkited was in rhyme, it 
is probable that this circumstance suggested to him the 
propriety of endeavouring to imitate his copy in this 
respect. His work is supposed to belong to the latter 
p^rt of the twelfth century. The following is a bi'ief 
specimen : — 

" Tha, at Hum veorthc dreie, 
The Kiu'j^ gon to spekene, 
And agsii' his gode cnihten 
All heore rihten ; 
He get' seolver, ho gsef gold, 
Ho get' hois, ho get'lond, 
Oiistles and clsethcs eke, 
His monnen he iqueude." 

Such is a specimen of early rhyme, which henceforth 
began to hold divided sway with alliteration, till the 
time of Chaucer, when rhyme began to prevail, which 
henceforth maintained its sway, although, as we have 
seen, alliteration has by no means been banished from 
the fields of poesy. A few early specimens of the mix- 
ture of these poetical ornaments may not be unaccept- 
able. Our first extract is fi'om. the Kivrj of Tars, the 
composition of which has been referred to the beginning 
of the fourteenth century : — 

" The Soudan sat at his dess, 
Y-served of the first mess ; 

They comen into the hall 
To-fore the prince proud in press, 
Their tale they tolden withouten lees, 

And on their knees 'gan fall 

" And said : * Sire, the King of Tars 
Of wicked words is not scarce, 

Heathen hound he doth thee call ; 
And, ere his daughter he gave thee till, 
Thine heart-blood ho will spill, 
And til J' barons all.' " 

As there were some that early despised alliteration, so 
we find that there were those who eqaally despised 
fliyme. Ben Jonson spoke of it as 

" Wresting words from their true calling , 
Propping verse for fear of falling 
To the ground ; 

x'iv THE EDITO:; S I'liEtACE. 

" Jointing syllables, drowning letters, 
Fastening vowels, as with fetters 
They were bound." 

Marvel, in addi-essinfr Milton, says : — 

" Their fancies like our bushy-points appcfir, 
The poets tag them, wc for fashion wtar." 

And even Dryden, himself so great a master of rhyme, 

says : — . 

" Till barbarous nations, and more barbarous timc». 
Debased the majesty of verse to rhymes; 
These rude at first, a kind of tinkling prose, 
That limped along and hobbled at the close." 

^lilton likewise despised these terminal jiiiglings or 
tatr.s ; yet his consistency is not very apparent in his fre- 
quent use of alliteration. Whilst rhyme may be dis- 
pensed with in the epic, which may be supposed to be 
sustained by the dignity of the subject -and the grandeui 
of its style, yet, in spite of all that has been said against 
both alliteration and rhyme, it has been felt that the 
lower species of poetry require the adventitious aid of 
these ornaments, which, when the one is judiciously 
used, and the other employed in its purity, are so far 
from jarring on the ear that they afibrd it no inconsider- 
able pleasure. But when alliteration is crowded and 
rhymes are either impure, or occasion the inversion of 
the line, then the art of the rhymer, or rather his inabi- 
lity to manage his materials, becomes so palpable as to 
be offensive. 

Rhyme is not, sti'ictly speaking, " the correspondence 
of sounds in the terminating words or syllables of two 
verses ;" for in true or pure rhymes there must be a 
dissimilarity connected with tliis correspondence of 
sounds ; and that dissimilarity will be found in the con- 
sonants immediately preceding the terminal sounds. 
Thus the two words rain and reiyn, differing both in 
their orthography and meaning, have an exact " corres- 
pondence of sound," but yet they would not therefore 
foi-m correct rh\Tnes ; and we find the reason in the 
sameness of the initial consonants : let us therefore 
change one of the consonants, and we shall immediately 
have words that constitute perfect rhymes ; thus : — 

" The school we name a world, — for vice and /Jain, 
Fraud and contention^ there begin to reign ; " 


Or prefix another consonant that will coalesce with r, 
and we shall have another word, Irain, and a perfect 
rhyme ; thus : — 

" But still, my friend, that ancient spirit n igns, 
His powers support the credit of his Aiains' — 

Should the rhyming syllables, however, both have the 
same consonant, a syllable protixed to one of the words 
will not fit the words for rhyming together. Thus, in 
the following example, the rhyming syllable in both 
lines is the same, although one of them is preceded 
by another syllable, and, therefore, the rhyme is im- 
proper : — 

" What wonder I was all unwise 

To shape the song for your delight, 
Like long-taild birds of Paradise, 

'J hat float thro' heaven and cannot light." 

The rhymes in the following couplet, for a similar 
reason, are equally faulty : — ■ 

" And then, that instant, there appeared the maid, 
By his sad looks in her approach dismay'd." 

In the case of a female syllabic, or double ending, the 
rhyme is in the accented syllables, and, therefore the 
differing consonants must precede them : — 
•' Faint she grew and ever fainter, 
As she murmur'd ' Oh, that he 
Were once more that viUage painter, 
Which did win my heart from mo.' " 

It may be farther remarked, regarding double end- 
ings, that words ending in tion and inrj, perhaps from 
the facility of finding them, are avoided by our best 
poets ; neither is it correct to say that double endings 
are peculiar to ludicrous composition, as is sufficiently 
evinced by the poem from which the preceding extract 
has been taken. No doubt double endings and com- 
pound words are used in ludicrous composition, but they 
are not essentially ludicrous. 

Rhyme does not appear to have been admitted into 
the poetry of the Romans as a uniform ornament ; but 
we frc^quently find the semifeet of the pentameter con- 
stituting rhymes, which we can scarcely suppose oc- 
curred per incuriam ; thus : — 

" Dum lie. t, in liquids nat tihi liiitcr aqu«." 

xlvi TH£ editor's PREFACfi. 

Ovid's poem, called Fasti, is wholly written in Elegiac 
verse, and affords innumerable examples of this prac- 
tice ; but, instead of giving a number of unconnected 
lines, we shall rather present a brief passage, in Avhich 
the frequency of rhyme in the pentameter lines will be 
readily perceived : — 

" Quid tibi cum gladio f duLiani rege, navita, pinum. 

Nun sunt hajc digits arina tenenda tnis. 
lUo metu pavidus, ^lortem non dcprecor, inquit: 

Scd liceat sumpt« pauca reforre lyra. 
Dant veniam, ridentque moram. Capit ille coronam, 

QiicB possit crines, Phoebe, decere tuos. 
Iiiduerat Tyrio bis tinetam inurice pallara : 

Reddidit icta s\ios pollico chorda sonos : 
Protinus in medias ornatus desilit undas; 

Spargitur impulse caarula puppis aqua. 
Inde — fide majus — tergo delphina recurvo 

Se memorant oneri supposuissc novo. 
Ille sedens citharamque tenet, pretiumque vehendi 

Cautat, et sequores* carmine mulcet aqu««." 

Our own poets, in their minor productions, have 
apparently imitated this practice in such lines as do not 
rhyme with their corresi^onding lines, as in the other 
verses of the poem ; thus Campbell, in Lord Ullin's 
Dauijhter : — 

" But still as wilder blew the wind, 
And as the night grew drearer, 
A down the glen rode armed m(». 
Their trampling sounded nearer." 

Tennyson has uniformly adopted this construction in 
the fifth line of the stanza of Ladij Clara Vere da Vere: - 

" Howe'er it be, it seems to me, 
'Tis only noble to bo good. 
Kind hearts arc more than coronets, 
And simple faith than Norman blood." 

As our remarks and examples, however, have far ex- 
ceeded the bounds prescribed to us, we must now con- 
clude with the hope that they may both interest the 
admirer of verse, and aid the youthful aspirant to poetic 


,1. L. 



Amokg the various atteinpts to tUcilitfite the ortliography 
and pronunciation of the English language, it is not a little 
.surprising that the method here adopted should have been 
either totally overlooked or neglected. A Rhyming Dic- 
tionary in a living language, ior the purposes of poetry, 
seems no very unnatural or useless production, and imper- 
fect sketches of such a work have already been given us 
by Poole and Bysshe ; but no one has hitherto thought of 
making a dictionary of terminations subservient to the art 
of spelling and pronouncing. The more obvious use of a 
vvoi-k of this kind was perhaps an obstacle to the comple- 
tion of it, and its latent, though more useful qualities, were 
by this means unobserved. A mere rhyming dictionary 
was looked on either as a bauble for school boys, or a re- 
Bource for poetasters ; and the nobler ends of pointing 
out the analog)'^ of orthography and pronunciation, like 
many other advantages, were overlooked in the insigni- 
ficancy and puerility of the means. 

Johnson's Dictionary is scarcely more valuable for so 
nicely tracing the various and almost vanishing shades of 
the same word, than for furnishing us with so copious a 
collection of nearly similar words of a different form. 
Those who understand the harmony of prose, pay a 
cheerful tribute to Dr. Johnson on this account, as he 
admits them to a more easy and extensive view of the 
powers of the language, than can possibly be suggested 
by the memory alone ; and by this means assists that 
delicacy of choice, on which the precision and harmony 
of expression so essentially depend. This advantage, 
which perhaps was not foreseen by Dr. Johnson himself, 
was no more than a necessary, though not an obvious, 
consequence of so copious and perfect a distribution of 
the language into its constituent parts ; and without the 
vanity of pretending to a parallel, it may naturally be 
presumed, that an arrangement, which is perfectly new, 



may possibly produce advantages which were entirely 
unnoticed before this arrangement was actually drawn 
out ; for experience furnishes us with a variet}' of in- 
stances of unexpected improvements arising from new, 
and perhaps fortuituous combinations, which were never 
suspected by theorists, until a discovery had been made. 
The English Language, it may Idc said, has hitherto 
been seen through but one end of the perspective ; and 
though terminations form the distinguishing character 
and specific difference of every language iu the world, we 
have never till now had a prospect of our own, iu this 
point of view. Dr. Wallis has, with great penetration 
and sagacit}^, shown the general import of initial con- 
sonants ; and with more appearance of truth than could 
have been conceived, has evinced, that words of a simi- 
lar signification, which ai'e radically English, coni- 
mence with nearly the same radical articulations. Mr. 
Elphinston too has given us a very good idea of the 
general impoi-t of terminations, by strictures on the 
greatest part of them ; but none have yet thought it 
worth their while to give us a complete and alphabetical 
enumei'ation of the whole, by which alone we can have 
an adequate idea of every part. In this arrangement of 
the language, we easily discover its idiomatic structure, 
and find its several parts fall into their proper classes, 
and almost every word as much distinguished by its 
termination as its sense. We at one glance perceive 
the peculiar vegetation of our own language, and the 
alteration foreign words undergo, by being transplanted 
into English soil. And thus by an acquaintance with the 
specific character of every termination, we are the more 
readily led to assimilate foreign terms, by stamping them 
with the cuiTent impression of our own.

But an analogical insight into the recesses of fonnation 
is not every advantage ai'ising from this new and complete 
prospect of it. Our orthography is not only an insuper- 
able difficulty to foreigners, but an [endless] source of 
dispute and perplexity to ourselves ; and, tiiougli it would 

bo in vain to think of removing every intricacy that is 
constantly arising from indolence and caprice, yet that 
a considerable number may be remedied by a view of 
the general laws of formation, will be readily conceived 
by those who enquire into the origin of the difficulties 
complained of. ]3y an affectation of approximating to 
the ortliography of the learned languages, we have rooted 
out many useful letters that sprang up naturally with 
exotic words, and have been led to exclude all letters in 
our compounds which are not actually pronounced, 
though their existence in these words is often no less 
necessary to prevent ambiguity than in the simples 

Thus the useful servile e is hai'dly ever suffered to 
have a place in composition, though, from a feeling of its 
importance, we are almost intuitively tempted to let it 
remain in the branches, wlienever we recollect it in the 
root. The omission or insertion of this letter occasions 
a numerous catalogue of rules and exceptions. The other 
serviles, I, s, &c. are no less absurdly omitted in com- 
position, though their power remains, and by this means 
both orthography and pronunciation are confounded. 
The duplication of consonants, when an additional ter- 
mination is assumed, forms another difficulty in our 
tfci-minational orthography, as it may be called, Avhicli 
has embarrassed the most correct and accurate writers. 
Now the only clew to extricate us from this labyrinth 
seems the method here adopted. An immediate view of 
the similar formation of similar parts of speech, gives us 
a competent idea of the laws of terminatioual ortho- 
graphy, and enables us to detect the least violation of 
them. Thus when in our best dictionaries I find saleable, 
tameahh, and a few other words of the same form, retain 
the silent e, I conclude these are either slips of the pen, 
or errors of the press ; for that the whole current of 
similar endings, as hlamahle, adorable, definable, &c. omit 
the e, and that no reason appears for retaining it in the 
former, and not in the latter words. 

But in order to detect the orthographical irregularities 
of our language, it will be necessary first to lay down 
such general maxims in spelling as have almost universally 
taken place. By these we may judge of the iraproprietj 


of those deviations, whicb are owing perhaps to a waul 
of seeing the laws of formation as here exhibited, and 
knowing how far the irregularity extends. 



Monosyllables ending with/, Z, or s, preceded by a sin- 
gle vowel, double the iinal consonant; as staff, mill, pass, 
<fec. of, if, as, is, gas, has, icas, yes, us, thus, are the only 
exceptions ; and add, bntf, ebh, egg, odd, err, buzz, are the 
only words where other consonants aredoubledin the same 


Words ending with y, preceded by a consonant, form 
the plural of nouns, the persons of verbs, verbal nouns, 
past participles, comparatives, and superlatives, by 
changing y into i ; as spy, spies, I carry, thou carricst, he 
carridh, or carries, carrier, carried, hapjjy, haprpier, hap- 
piest ; but the present participle in ing retains the y, 
that i may not be doubled, as carrying ; y preceded by 
a vowel is never thus changed, as hoy, hoys, I cloy, lie 
cloys, &c. 


By this rule we may perceive the impropriety of 
Avriting /??/pr {or flier, and dcfyer tor defer, and the still 
greater impropriety of writing /a^ne?*, (finer, and softner, 
i'or faltener, oftener, softener ; though we meet with them 
in our best dictionaries ; for the common terminations 
of verbs, verbal nouns, participles, Ac. never occasion 
any contraction in the radical word ; entrance and re- 
membrance pretend kindi-ed -with the French entrant 
and remembrer, and are therefore incorrigible; but won- 
drous ought to be written with the e, as well as slander- 
ous ; and if we write dexterous, why should we see 
sinistruus ? 


Words ending with the hissing consonants, ch, s, >7t, 
SB, z, form the plural of nouns by adding es, and the per- 
sons of verbs by est, etii, or e.s', as church, churches, 1 
march, thou marchest, he marcheth, or marches. Gcni- 


tives of words ending in these consonants are formed by 
addinjf s with an apostrophe; as SL Jarncn' a churchy the 
church's ceremonies. 


Words ending with any consonant and silent e, form 
their phiral by adding s only, as a jj/rtce, jjZaces, and per- 
sons oi" verbs, by adding st, ih, or s, as I place, thou 
jjlacest, he placeth, or places. Genitives of words ending 
with these letters are formed, by adding s with an apos- 
trophe, as the place's pleasantness. Material adjectives 
in y, and comparatives in ish, are formed, from substan- 
tives of this termination by omitting the silent e, and 
annexing y or ish to the consonant, as ropy, vnny, slavish, 
swinish, &c. from rope, wine, slave, swine, &c. The past 
participles, verbal nouns, and. comparatives and super- 
latives, add d,r, and st, to the simple, as placed, a placer, 
wise, vAser, wisest; but the present participle cuts off the 
e, and annexes ing, as placing. However, where the 
silent e is preceded by the soft g, the e must be pre- 
served, if the sense of the word would otherwise be am- 
biguous ; for we have no other means of distinguishing 
singeing, the participle oi to singe, fi'om siiiging, the par- 
ticiple of to sing ; sioingcing, from sunnging, &c. As to 
cringing, twinging, &c. from cringe, iivinge, &c., we trust 
to the common power of the letters, as we have no verbs 
to cring, ticing, &c., to occasion any mistake ; for with 
respect to participles and verbal nouns, a previous know- 
ledge of the theme is supposed to be indispensably 
necessary. — See Aphoi'ism x. 


Words ending with a single consonant, preceded by a 
single vowel, and with the accent on the last syllable, 
upon assuming an additional syllable, beginning with a 
vowel or y, double the consonant, as to abet, an abettor ; 
to begin, a beginning; a fen, fenny ; thin, thinnish, &c. 
but if a diphthong precede, or the accent be on the pre- 
ceding s^dlable, the consonant remains single, as to toil, 
toiling; in offer, an offering, &c. 



By this rule, which is founded on an intention of as- 
certaining the quantity of the accented vowel by donb- 
ling the consonant, and which would be infinitely use- 
ful and agreeable to the analogy of the language, if ex- 
tended universally, we perceive the impropriety of spell- 
ing the adventitious S3-llable3 of terminations with 
double letters, when the accent is not really upon them. 
Bishop Lowth has justly remarked, that this error fre- 
quently takes place in the words, worshipping, counselling 
&c., which, having the accent on the first syllable, ought 
to be written ivorshipiag, counseling, &c. An ignor- 
ance of this rule has led many to write bigotted for 
bigoted ; and from this spelling has frequently arisen a 
false pronunciation ; [or rather the mis-spelling has ' 
arisen from a former mode of pronunciation, in which the } 
accent was placed on the penult, as is occasionally ' 
done in Scotland to the present day ; ] but no letter j 
seems to be more frequently doubled improperly than I. j 
Why we should write libelling, levelling, revelling, and 
yet offering, sitffering, reasoning, I am totally at a loss to I 
determine ; and unless I can give a better plea than any I 
other letter in the alphabet for being doubled in this 
situation, I must, in the style of Lucian, in his trial of 
the letter T, declai'e for an expulsion. [Since Wal- 
kei''s time the superfluous t has been rejected from 
bigotted; but the I in the other words still improperly 
retains its duplicity.] 


Words ending with y, preceded by a consonant, upon 
assuming an additional syllable beginning with a con- 
sonant, change y into i, as happy, happily, happiness; 
but y preceded by a vowel is never thus changed, as 
coy, coyly, ga/y, gayly, &c. [but gaily is of daily occur- 


By att'jtiding to this rule, we detect a number ol 
typographical errors, from wliich even oar best diction- 
ary is uot free ; such as shyly, dryly, dryness, instead <'l

Essay on Orit. 

Thougli in the first edition of this Essay, published 
by Pope himself, we find this word written dri/lij. Why 
the y should be thus converted into i is not easily con- 
ceived, unless it was feared we should confound words 
of our own language with those derived from the Greek ; 
for, with respect to the distinction of the plural number 
from the genitive case, as this does not prevent the 
similitude when a vowel precedes, why should we fear 
a mistake between Jl)js and ffifs any more than between 
boys and boy's ? It is highly probable that the origin of 
this insignificant and embarrassing change of the y into 
i, arose from the taste and sagacity of English printers, 
who considered the y as bearing too little proportion to 
the number of the other letters, and made this weighty 
reason the foundation of the alteration. But to this al- 
teration once allowed by custom, even a Baskervillc 
must submit ; and certainty being more the object of 
language than perfect proirrlety, it would be the last ab- 
surdity, to deprive a rule, which has nothing else to 
recommend it, of its only merit — uniformity, 


Words ending with any double letter but Z, and taking 
tiGss, less, hj, or fid, after them, preserve the letter double; 
as harmlcssness, carelessness, carelessly, stiffness, stiffly, suc- 
cessful, distressful, &c. ; but those words ending with 
double I, and taking ?iess, less, ly, or ful, after them, omit 
one I, as fulness, slcilless, fully. 


Why one I should be omitted when less or ly is as- 
sumed, may be easily conceived to arise from the uncouth 
appearance three letters of the same kind would have 
when meeting together ; but why the analogy between 
these simples and compounds should be destroyed when 
ness or ful is assumed, is not easy to comprehend ; why 
should we not write dullness, fullness, skillful, andivillful. 


IS well as stiffness, gruffness, crossly, and crossness '! Nay, 
the propi'iety of this orthography makes it almost impos- 
sible to root it out entirely, and we find these lour 
words, illness, feUness, shrillness, and stilluess, left in our 
best dictionary with the double I, but a greater number 
of words of the same form having the single /, as smal- 
uess, tailless, chilness, dahtess, fulness, and the long cata- 
logue of words of this termination, as wilfulness, hlissful' 
ness, &c., sufficiently show to which orthography custonj 
has the greatest partiality ; and indeed as the rage for 
curtailing oui' language of double letters seems incurable, 
the disease will at least be more tolerable if we deter- 
mine its progress to some uniformity, and since there is 
no hope of restoring the lost I to

unless we are determined to have no rule for our ortho- 
graphy, good or bad ? This rule likewise serves to cor- 
rect several typographical errors in our best dictionary, 
as careleshj, needlesly, &c., for carelessly, needlessly, &v.* 


Ness, less, ly, and ful, added to words ending with 
silent e, do not cut it off, as paleness, guileless, closely, 
peaceful, &c., except e is preceded by a vowel, and then 
it is omitted, as duly, truly, from doe, and true. 


But what shall we say then to hluely, hlueness, rueful, 
<l'c., which, strange as it may seem, would be more agree- 
ably to the general current of orthography, written hluly, 
hluness, ruful, &c. The reasons seem to be these : wher- 
ever the general laws of pronunciation in compounds 
supply the place of serviles in simple words, there the 
Bervilcs are omitted ; but bluly, hluness, ruful, &c., ac- 

* 'Ihese observations arc not now applicable, as smalh ««, tall- 
ness, chillneas, dullness, fnUmss, &c., are written with a doiiblu /. 


cording to the commou rule of pronouncing, would be 
as justly sounded as hluehj, hlueness, rueful, &c., and at 
tbe same time would preclude the possible mistake 
which might arise if the simples hhie and rue were not 
understood to be the root of the words in question ; for 
in this case hlueness and rupful might be pronounced as 
if divided into hlu-e-ness and ru-e-ful ; but as it is neces- 
sary the spelling should convey the sound of the com- 
pound, without supposing a previous knowledge of the 
simples, and without being liable to a double pronuncia- 
tion, the omission of e in hluhj and bluness, as well as in 
did;/ and irtihj, seems most analogical. — /S'ee Aphorism x.

Ment added to the words ending with silent e, pre-

Able and ihle, when incorporated into words ending 
with silent e, almost always cut it off, as blamahle, curable, 
sensible, but if c or gr soft come before e in the original

This exception is founded on the necessity of showing 
that the preceding c and y in these words are soft, which 
might possibly be mistaken, and pronounced hard, if 
written changable, peacable, &c. Another exception 
seems to take place in the compounds oi move audi p-ove, 
which are generally written moveable, proveable, &c., 
but on an inspection into all the compounds of these 

words in " Johnson's Dictionary," we find the e so often 
omitted as to make it 'very doubtful whether these words 
are an exception to the general rule or not, for thus they 
stand —

{ Immovably 






The uncertainty of our orthography m this class of 
words may be presumed to arise from a confused idea of 
the necessity of ascertaining the sound of the simple by 
inserting the silent e, and the general custom of omitting 
tliis letter when words are compounded with these ter- 
minations ; and it will require some attention to dis 
cover to which of these modes of spelling we ought to 
give the preference ; however, till better reasons are 
offered for a decision, let us suppose the following : — 

The first object of spelling compound words seems to 
be merely a conveyance of the sound, without necessarily 
supposing a knowledge of the simples ; that the elements 
of which the compound is formed, may be sufficient of 
themselves to suggest their sound. The next object of 
spelling compounds seems to be an omission of all ser- 
viles in the simples which were not actually sounded, 
and whose use may be supposed to be superseded in the 
compounds by the general laws of English pronuncia- 
tion, which, contrary to those of the learned languages, 
suppose every accented vowel to be long and open, which 
is followed but by a single consonant. Thus the e in 
desirable is omitted, because the common rules of pro- 
nunciation indicate that the accent upon i, followed by 
a consonant succeeded by a vowel, with the accent upon 
it, has necessarily the same sound as in desire. But when 
the radical letters have not their ordinary sound in the 


simples, the first law of ortliography takes place, and 
inserts the servile e to suggest the souud of the simple, 
when blended with the compound ; for though we are 
frugal of our letters to a fault, yet when the sound of 
any of the radical letters might be endangered b\r such 
an omission, wo then find the e preserved. Nor is a 
previous knowledge of the simple supposed to be a suffi- 
cient security, as in changeahle, peaceable, &c. From 
hence we may gather that every compound word is sup- 
posed to convey its own sound agreeably to the common 
sound of the letters, without the necessity of having re- 
course to a knowledge of the simples from which it is 
formed, and therefore as the sound of o in move, prove, 
&c., is not the general sound of that letter, and conse- 
quently if the e were not preserved to suggest the simple, 
it might be liable to the sound of o in rove, grove, love, or 
shove, we find it perfectly agreeable to the first genera] 
law of English orthography to retain the letter by which 
alone the sound of the radical part of the word can be 
ascertained ; and therefore as we very justly write move- 
able, pi-oveable, &c., so we ought to write revioveable, im- 
proveable, &c., moving, proving, &c., being afiections of 
the verbs move and prove, necessarily suggest their 
simples, and make the insertion of e unnecessary. — See 
Aphorism iv. 

With respect to reconcileable, unreconcUeable, and re- 
concileableness, which we find in Johnson with the e, 
Wxoaghirreconcilable, irreconcilably, and irreconcilahleness, 
are without it, we must class these with saleable, tame- 
able, unshalceable, uidameable, and sizeable; for as these 
are the only words of this form in the whole language 
whore the silent e is preserved, it is reasonable to sup- 
pose that its insertion here was owing to the inadvert- 
ence either of the author or printer ; for as the preser- 
vation of e in these words is founded on such reasons as 
would oblige us to preserve the silent e in all compounds 
where it is now omitted, and consequently entirely alter 
the current orthography, the omission of it, wherever 
the preceding vowel or consonant retains its general 
sound, is certainly the most analogical ; as there is no 
more reason for retaining the silent e in saleable, tame- 
able, &c. than in blamable, tenable, consumable, &c. tithe' 


able has a proper claim to the e, to show that th lias its 
flat or obtuse sound. 


The verbs to /((//, jxt//, and saj/, by an unaccountable 
caprice, form their 23reterites and participles passive, by 
changing y into /, and omitting c in the assumed ter- 
mination ed ; and instead of layed, payed, sayed, we 
always see laid, paid, said, which orthography is pre- 
served in their compounds, as unlaid, uiisaid, repaid. 
This is an exception to Aphorism ii. 


Words taken into composition often drop those letters 
which were superfluous in their simples, as Chrislnias, 
duvyhil, handful, &c. 


The uncertainty of our orthography in this article 
calls loudly for reformation, and nothing can better 
show the danger of indulging this excision, than a 
display of the diversity that reigns in Johnson's Dic-

The origin of this ridiculous iiTegulariLy which has 
prevailed within these tew years, is not hard to guess. 
Some shallow writers, or perhaps printers, have heard 
that good authors have complained that our language is 
clogged by clusters of consonants. This was sufl^icieut 
to set these smatterers at work on so easy a business as 
that of unloading the language of its useless letters ; 
and we find, under the notion of useless letters, and 
clusters of consonants, we are near being deprived of 


tlie most useful letters we lifxvc. But -words are evi- 
dently mistaken foi- things. Clusters of consonants to 
tbe ear are very different from assemblages of conson- 
ants to the eye ; these ai'e often no more than double 
consonants of the same kind, and are so^xnded as easily 
as single ones ; but those knots of discordant consonants 
to the ear, however disgustful, ai'e not to be removed 
without entirelj' altering the language. The clusters of 
consonants of which ^h•. Addison complains, are those 
that arise from sinking the intervening vowels in pro- 
nunciation, as droivn\l, ivalk'd, arriv'd, for drowned, 
waR-cd, arrived. The double letters at the end of words, 
which are ridiculously confounded with what is termed 
clusters of consonants, as to install, xvindfall, liandjull, 
&c., are often so essentially necessary to preserve the 
true sound from being mistaken, that, if we deprive 
words of one of these double letters, they are in danger 
of deo-eneratinsr into a different sound ; for what secu- 
rity have we but a previous knowledge of the simples, 
which is contrary to the first principles of our ortho- 
graphy, that the last syllable of waterfal is not to rhyme 
with the first oi shallow, and the last of handful with the 
monosyllable dull ? 

In short, as Mr. Elpbinston very justly, as well as 
pleasantly, observes, " Every reader, both young and 
old, must now be so sagacious an analyst, as to discern 
at once, not only what are compounds, and what their 
simples, but that oX i u composition is equal to all out of 
it; or, in other words, that it is, both what it is, and 
what it is not." — Frin. Eng. Lan. vol. i. p. 60. 

Thus have I ventured, with a trembling hand, to 
point out a few of the most glaring inconsistencies 
under which the orthography of our language labours, 
without daring to make the least step to a reformation 
myself; lor if ever this be done to any good purpose, it 
must certainly be by the joint labour of both our uni- 
versities ; till when, no individual can do better service 
to the orthogi'aphy of his country, than to let it remain

subsequent editors of Johnson's Dictionaiy ; but whether from the 
remarks here made, or their own sagacity, we are not informed. 


philology erected by Johnson. Those who see beyond 
the surface, regret the many deviations from that only 
standard of our language by the Greekliugs and Latin- 
itastors of this smattering age ; and it is certainly to be 
feared, that^ if this pruning of our words of all the 
superduo'is letters, as they are called, should be much 
farther indulged, we shall quickly antiquate our most 
respectable authors and irreparably maim our language. 


As the inverted order of arrangement gives us a con- 
sistent idea of the structure of language, so a division of 
words into syllables du'ects us in their sound ; for the 
division here adopted is not founded on any rules drawn 
from etymology, or the practice of languages essentially 
different from our own, but on such principles as are the 
result of the language itself, and arise naturally from 
the very nature and practice of pronunciation. This 
part of language, which has been left to chance or 
caprice, is of all others the most important and delicate. 
Hardly anything like a system has been chalked out, or 
have any rules been given that have produced the least 
uniformit}', or answered any valuable purposes of pro- 
nunciation. Till Dr. Kenrick's Rhetorical Dictionary, 
we have scarcely seen anythir ^ like an attempt to divide 
words as they are pronounced ; but the Latin and Greek 
Byllabication implicitly adopted, to the evident disad- 
vantage of children, and emban-assment of foreigners ; 
and for the very same reasons that Ramus contends we 
ought to divide doctus and Atlas into do-ctus and A-tlas, 
Mr Ward insists we must separate magnet, pojjlar, lustre, 
and reptile into ma-gnet, po-plar, lu-stre, and re-pt'de. 

Now if the end of syllabication may be supposed to 
be the most likely method of directing us to the means^ 
we shall find nothing can be more absurd than such a 
division. For the object of parcelling out a word into 
distinct portions, seems to be to instruct us cither in its 
etymology or pronunciation. If in the division of words 
into syllables we have only etymology in view, we must 
undoubtedly resolve compounds into their simples, with- 
out paying the least attention to the sound of these 
sinjplcs, either as united, or in a state of separation. 


But though this method of syllaljicnliug be very proper 
vvliou we woukl inve.sti'jfate the origin of a word and 
show its derivation, yet, when a distinctness of sound is 
the only object of such a division, as is ever the case in 
the pronunciation of language, it would be the highcsl 
al).surdity to clog the instruction with etymological divi- 
sions, as these are frequently opposite to actual pronun- 
ciation. Here then, sound alone should be the criterion 
of syllabication, and we ought to reduce a compound 
word to its simple impulses of the voice, as we would 
a bar of music to its simple notes ; for etymologists may 
surely content themselves with their own divisions 
where sound is not in question, without disturbing 
those w^hose principal object is the conveying of sound, 
and who consider etymology as entirely independent 
on it. 

Easy, however, as such a division may appear at first 
view, an attempt to extend it to every word in the lan- 
guage will soon convince us that the ear in a thousand 
instances will prove but a very uncertain guide, without 
a knowledge of those principles by which the ear itself 
is insensibly directed, and which, having their origin in 
the nature of language, operate with steadiness and re- 
gularity in the midst of the ficklest affectation and 
caprice. It can scarcely be supposed that the most ex- 
perienced speaker has heard every word in the language 
and the whole circle of sciences pronounced exactly as 
it ought to be ; and if this be the case, he must some- 
times have recourse to the principles of pronunciation, 
when his ear is either uninformed or unfaithful. These 
principles are those general laws of articulation, which 
determine the character, and fix the boundaries of 
every language ; as in every system of speaking, how- 
ever irregular, the organs must necessarily fall into some 
common mode of enunciation, or the purpose of Provi- 
dence in the gift of speech would be absolutely defeated. 
These laws, like every other object of philosophical in- 
quiry, are only to be traced by an attentive observation 
and enumeration of particulars, and when these parti- 
culars are sufficiently numerous to form a general rule, 
an axiom in pronunciation is acquired. By an accumu- 
lation of these axioms, and an analog-ical comparison of 



thein with each other, ue dibcuver tlie deviations ol 
laiiiruage where custom has varied, and the only clow to 
guide us where custom is either indeterminate or ob- 

Thus, b}- a view of the words ending in ihj or e/?/, 1 
hiid the accent invariably placed on the preceding sylla- 
ble, as in diverdil)/, congruitij, &c. On a closer inspec- 
tion I find every vowel in this antepenultimate syllable, 
when no consonant intervenes, pronounced long, as 
de'itij, pi'eiy, &c., a nearer observation shows mc that if 
a consonant intervene, every vowel in this syllable buttt 
contracts itself, and is pronounced short, as sever'itij, 
curids'itij, impu'iiity, &c. I find too, that even u con- 
tracts itself before two consonants, as cufvihj, iaciluDiiti/ 
&c., and tha.t scarcity and rarity* (for whose irregularity 
good reasons may be given), are the only exce])tions to 
this rule throufjliout the lanyuaoe. And thus we have 
a series of near seven hundred words, the accentuation 
of which, as well as the quantity of the accented vowel, 
is reduced to two or three simple rules. 

The same uniformity of accentuation and quantity, 
may be observed in the first syllable of those words 
which have the accent on the third, as dem-on-stra'tion, 
dim-i-tni'tio)i, lu-cii-bra'tiu7i, &c., where we evidently per- 
ceive a stress on the first syllable shortening every 
vowel butif, and this in every word thi'oughout the lan- 
guage, except where two consonants follow the u, as in 
cnr-vi-lin-ear, or where two vowels follow the consonant 
that succeeds any other vowel in the first syllable, as 
de-vi-a'tion ; or lastly, where the word is evidently of 
our own composition, as rc-con-vey : but as u in the first 
syllable of a word, having the accent on the third has 
the same tendency to length and f)penness as was ob- 
servable when it preceded the termination iiy ; I find it 
necessary to separate it from the consonant in hu-ty- 
raci'cnis, which I have never heard pronoimced, as well as 
in lucubration, which I have, and this from no pretended 
agreement with the quantity of the Latin words these are 
dei'ived from, for in the former word the u is doubtful ; 
but from the general system of quantity I see adopted 
in English pronunciation. This only will direct an

English car with certainty ; for tliongh wc may some- 
times place the accent on words we borrow from the 
Greek or Latin on the same syllable as in those langu- 
ages, as acu'mev, elegi'ac, &c.; nay, though we sometimes 
adopt the accent of the original with every word of the 
same termination we derive from it, as assidu'ify, vidu'ity, 
&c., yet the quantity of the accented vowel is so often 
contrary to that of the Latin and Greek, that scarcely 
the shadow of a rule can be di'awn, in this point, from 
these languages to ours. Thus, in the letter in question, 
in the Latin accuniulo, cluhious, hmurar, &c., the first u 
is everywhere short; but in the English words accumu- 
late, duhius, tumor, evei'y where long. Nu2it'ali.-y viur- 
Tiiur, ttirbtdent'us, &c. where the u in the first syllable in 
Latin is long, we as constantly pronounce it short in 
nuptial, murmur, turbulent, &c. Nor indeed can we 
wonder that a different economy of quantity is observ- 
able in the ancient and modern languages, as in the 
former, two consonants almost always lengthen the pre- 
ceding vowel, and in the latter as constantly shorten it. 
Thus, without arguing in a vicious circle, we find that 
as a division of the generality of words as they are 
actually pronounced, gives us the general laws of sylla- 
bication, so these laws, once understood, direct us in the 
division of such words as we have never heard actually 
pronounced, and consequently to the true pronunciation 
of them. For these operations, like cause and effect, re- 
flect nmtually a light on each other, and prove that, by 
nicely observing the path Avhich custom in language has 
once taken, we can more than guess at the line she 
must keep in a similar case, where her footsteps are not 
quite so discernible. So true is the observation of 
Scaliger, Ita omnihus in rebus certissivi'i ratione sibi ijjsa 
respondet iiatura. — De causis Ling. Lat. 


Syllabication having sound for its object, and the asso- 
ciation of similar terminations contributing so largely to 
facilitate syllabication, it is evident that the most obvious 
advantage of this inverted prospect of our language is the 
assistance it affords to pronunciation. In other dictiona- 
ries, words of a totally different form promiscuously sue- 


ceod each other, while in this we find the words sorted 
by their species as well as letters. It is recommended 
by Mr. Sheridan, in his Lectures on Elocution, to select 
those words which we find difficult to pronounce, and to 
repeat thern frequently till a habit is acquired. This rule 
is founded on good sense and experience, and ought to 
be carefully attended to by foreigners and provincials; 
but if the difficulty of pronouncing lies in the latter 
syllables, as is most frequently the case, what immense 
labour must it be to select these from a common dic- 
tionar}' ? But in this, how readily are we introduced to 
the whole species of any termination at once, and by 
seeing the whole class, gain an intimate acquaintance 
with its specific orthography and pronunciation ; fur by 
this means, not only a more precise idea of the spelling 
of words is obtained, and an opportunity of habituat- 
ing the organs to every difficult termination, but the 
dependence of accent on termination is at large dis- 
played, and a habit induced of associating the stress 
with its corresjiondent ultimate P3'llable. This view of 
accent will show us that our lano-aao-e is much less irre- 
galar than is generally imagined, and we soon discover 
termination to be, as it were, a rudder to accent, a key 
that opens to us an unexpected scene of uniformity, and 
proves, as Mr. EliDhinston admirably expresses it, " that 
speech, the peculiar glory of rational intercourse, is 
neither given nor guided by an arbitrary power, but that 
use in language, as in all nature, is no other than the 
constant agency of harmony and of reason." — Frin. Eiig. 
Lan. vol. i. p. 3. 

There are few but must observe with what difficulty 
chililren, and even youth, acquire a secure pronunciation 
of the technical terms in the learned professions, and 
how frequently they are at a loss for the sound of an 
English word they have not been accustomed to even at 
the time they are making great advances in the learned 
languages. This observation will naturally lead us to 
presume that the present work, of all others, must be the 
most useful for such schools as are not entirely negligent 
of their mother tongue. Here the words of any difficulty 
are selected in a moment, and by being repeated a few 
times over in the order they lis, will imbue the ear with 


Bucli an accentual rliythmus, if I may call it so, as will 
infallibly rei^ulato tlie pronunciation ever after. 

The division and accentuation of words, according to 
the length or shortness of the vowels, is an advantage 
to pronunciation which must strike the most cursory 
inspector. The utility of such a method, if just and 
agreeable to the analogy of the language, will be readily 
acknowledged by those who are so frequently disap- 
pointed in the inspection of other dictionaries. It is noa 
a little surprising that a method of accentuation, so pccu- 
liai'ly useful, should till lately have been almost entirely 
neglected. This defect in the generality of our dictiona- 
ries did not escape the judicious Mr. Sheridan, who in- 
sists largely on the utility of placing the accent on tho 
consonant, when the preceding vowel is short, and on the 
vowel, when the vowel itself is long ; and though this 
does not specify the kind of vowel, with respect to sound- 
which is the subject of accentuation, it at least deter- 
mines its quantity, and is so far infinitely superior to 
the common metliod of placing the accent on the vowel, 
whether it be long or short. 

Another and almost exclusive advantage of the pre- 
sent work is, that every monosyllable which swerves 
from the general rule of pronunciation, is rhymed with 
such a word as cannot possibly be pronounced otherwise 
than it is written ; or if this cannot be done, it is spelled 
in such a manner as to take away all ambiguity. Thus 
as the more general sound of the diphthong ea is like e 
long and open in here, mere, &c., wherever it deviates 
from this sound, a rhyme is inserted to ascertain its pro- 
nunciation ; head therefore is rhymed with hed, that it 
may not be liable to the Scotch pronunciation of this 
word, as if spelled heed ; and (jreat is rhymed with bate, 
chat it may be distinguished from the sound the Irish aro 
apt to give it, as if spelled greet. A how (to shoot with) 
Is rhymed with go, and bow (an act of reverence) with 
coiv ; and prove, dove, &c., are determined in their pro- 
nunciation by the uui vocal orthography prooue, duvv, &c. ; 
by this means the stamina of our language, as monosyl- 
lables may be called, are freed from ambiguity of sound, 
and compounds I'endered easier by fixing the pronuncia- 
tion of their simples. 



The laot, tliougli p'eraaps the least, advantage of tho 
following -work, is the complete collection of all the 
I'hymes in the language. However insignificant it may 
peem in this respect, it is at least ncAV. For though 
I^vsshe has given us a Dictionaiy of Rhymes at the end 
ot his Art of Poetry, his Dictionary, if it may be called 
so, does not contain six thousand words, when Johnson's 
Dictionary, to -which this approaches nearer than any 
other, has very few short of forty thousand.* Here, then, 
as in the French Dicfionnaire des Jiimes of JRiclielet, the 
whole lang-uao-e is arranged according to its similar end- 
ings, and the English are no longer unfurnished with an 
assistance to versification, Avhich Abbe du Bos tells us 
the French poets — Quoiqu'ils en clisent Us ont toiis ce livre 
dans leur arriere cabinet. But had the author seen no 
farther advantage in this work, than barely furnishing 
similar sounds for the purposes of poetry, he should 
have thought his labour ill bestowed. It is by no means 
his intention to vindicate the cause of rh^-me to the least 
prejudice of a nobler verse, which is the peculiar glory of 
the English as a living language ; nor will he insist on 
the proofs, both from nature and experience, that rhyme 
may be sometimes admitted to advantage, while Waller, 
Dryden, and Pope are in everybody's hands. t It will 
only be necessary to observe, that, for fear those who 
have been accustomed to the common dictionary of 
rhymes annexed to Bysshe, should find a difficulty in 
discovering words by this new arrangement, an index 
of Rhymes, much more copious and correct than any 
hitherto published, is added, in which the old method of 
classing the words is continued, and a new and nume- 
rous class of allowable rhymes pointed out, with autho- 
rities for their usage fi'om our best poets ; but for a more 
satisfactory account of this part of the work, see the 
Preface to the Index, at the end of this Dictionary, 

* Into this edition nearly 1800 additional words have heen in-

in his Ajt of Reading. 

by Mr. Rice. 



Among otber uses of the Klij-miiig Dictionaiy, and 
one that will most commend it to commercial men, is 
the assistance it affoi'ds in deciphering errors in tele- 
grams. All merchants having business relations with 
America or the Far East use Telegraph Codes, so 
arranged that each word in their Telegrams represents 
a whole sentence. Frequent) \^, however, these words 
are so mutilated in ti'ansmisaion as to be almost unre- 
cognizable. As a rule there is not much difficul!;y in 
finding the proper word if the ciphers (or symbolical 
words) in the code are alphabetically arranged, unless 
the first letters in it have been altered or lost. It is 
especially in the latter case that this work will be found 
useful, and evei'y merchant who receives Telegrams of 
importance should obtain a copy, and insert in their 
places such jjroper names or unusual words as he may 
be likely to receive in his Telegrams, if he does not find 
them already printed. 

An instance of not uncommon word-mutilation may 
be added to show the value of the book for the purpose 
above-mentioned. In a Telegram received, a word 
appears as " Sterturn." The merchant goes through 
the usual course of looking through his Code for any 
word like this, which will make sense in connection 
with the remainder of the message, and after wasting 
an hour or more in trying to decipher the true meaning, 
is compelled to return the Telegram to the Telegraph 
Company for repetition. 


Probably in tlic course of the iullowing day lie 
receives the amendod message, showing that the word 
originally despatched was " Overturn," moaning " Sell- 
to-arrive 1,000 hales Tinnivelly Cotton at 5^ pence ^^er 
pound." By this time, however, the London ])rice has 
declined to o^d, per pound, so that he must cither run 
the risk of holding the cotton in a falling market, or 
submit to an immediate loss of £300 on the previous 
day's quotation. Now had this merchant referred to 
this book under the letter N for words ending "erturn." 
he would at once have found the word "Overturn," and 
saved some hundreds of pounds. 

We may exjjlaiu that such an error as the above ia 
not unfi'equently caused by incoiTect reading of the 
"Morse" alphabet; the letter.s St being expressed in 

"Morse" by --- — and the letter V by , the 

initial "O" was either lost or very likely attached to 
the end of the previous word. 

Thousands of instances of errors and consequent 
heavy losses might be given, but no Merchant or 
Banker requires to be told of them, as they are uf 
ahnost daily occurrence. 

As a further assistance in deciphering badly trans- 
mitted messag's, we ai)pcnd the Alphabet, as 
used on almost every Telegraph wire throughout the 
world, and a list of the more common errors occuiring 
in Telegrams.

As in other Dictionaries words follnw each otlior in nn alphalictical 
order according to the letters they begin with, in this they I'dUow 
each other according to the letters thej- end with. AH words there- 
fore that end with a are placed first in this Dictionary, as all those 
that hcf/in with a arc placed first in otlier Dictionaries ; those that 
end with h arc placed next, and so of the rest. The directing let- 
ters at the top of each page, are likewise in the same order ; that 
is, they are the last letters of words instead of the first. 


In looking for a word, the last letter is to be sought first, the 
last but one next, and so on from the last to the first letters of a 
word in an order exactly contrary to that of other Dictionaries. 
Thus, if I want to find the word Idea, I must first look for a, 
among those words which end with a; those I find in the paga 
oj)posite to this. The next letter I want is e, I therefore look 
among those words that end with a, for a word whose last letter 
but one is e, and find it in the word Panacea, the twenty-fourth 
word from the top ; the next letter d, I li:)ok for among those word? 
that end with ea, and find it in the third word after I'anacca, which 
is the word I sought. So that for the last letter of a word, I look 
among those words ending with the same letter ; for the last letter 
but one of a word, I look among the last letters but one of these 
words, and so of the rest. 

It must be particularly noted, that the directing letters on the 
top of each page, are to be looked for in the same order, that is, 
from the right hand to the lelt. 

The best way to avoid coni'usion, will be to look for the letters 
one by one, and to begin with the first word of every class, and so 
proceed downwards till the word is found. Thus, if I want to find 
the word A/p/iabt/, I keep the last letter / in my mind, and turn 
to that part of the Dictionary whire the words ending with t are 
classed, which is near the end. The first word of this class I find 
to be (tt ; the next letter I want is e ; I therefore run my eye down 
the last letter but one of this class till [ come to l/cl, the next letter 
I want is a, which leads me to fix my eye upon the fourth letter 
from the last, which brings me to abet, and so of the rest. 

As this arrangcinniL is perfectly simple, two or three trials will 
render it as intelligible as the common order, especially if the word 
We look for be first written down, and carried along with the eye 
in its search.

El malgre the office is still a large fee mart, 

80 joyous the crowd was, you'd thought it a glee martf 



But they raf.ed at no news froiii tljo nations belligoroiit 

And I siiid, let'in rage, since the air is roliigeraiit. 

I then met large numbers, whose drink was not slicrl.ct,

I bade Mr Eaglet, altho' 'twas ideal, 

Get some from the clay-iiit, and so get'm real;

And row'd in his boat, which, for rhyme's sake, call bargekt. 

And blythe to the breeze would have set the sail daily.

Wheu a merle gat at large from a cage that she carried ; 

She gave a loud screech ! and I could not well blame her, 

But, lame as I was, I'd no wish to get lamer ; 

So I made my escape — ne'er an antelope fleeter, 

Lest my verse, like the poet, should limp thro' lag metre.
